The Kansas City Royals and the Detroit Tigers will meet on Sunday for the last time this season and to decide the winner of the current three game series. Edison Volquez will get the call for the Kansas City Royals while the Tigers will send Matt Boyd out to the hill.
The Tigers were able to take the series opener on Friday but then lost in game two Saturday.
Sunday will make the 18th start of the season for Matt Boyd who will be looking for his second win in a row.
He is coming off of the best game he has thrown all season, giving up only one run in eight innings against the Twins for his sixth win of the year.
After having a few struggles early on this season, the lefty has become a solid part of the Tigers rotation.
He currently has a record of 6-4 and an ERA of 4.16 with a 1.24 WHIP throughout 97.1 innings. He has definitely seen better days than the one last time he was on the mound against Kansas City when he gave up 7 runs in only 3.2 innings.
Detroit has been able to score at least four runs in 7 of their last 10 games and are averaging 4.61 runs a game with a batting average of .264.
The pitching staff has got some serious work to do if they plan on making any noise in the postseason.
They currently have a team ERA of .420 which is 19th in the Majors.
Kansas City Royals
Edison Volquez will look to improve his record to 11-11 in his 33rd start of the season on Sunday. He has solid in his last outing, giving up only one run in 6.1 innings.
Volquez has been able to have some great games this season, but he is yet to be able to find any consistency.
Throughout 181.2 innings of work, he has a 5.25 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. He has given up nine runs throughout 20 innings in his three games against Detroit this year.
The Royals have been in a slump with the wood lately and are only averaging 4.12 runs per game with a team batting average of .261.
The pitching staff of Kansas City has been average at best, coming in at 17th in the big leagues with a team ERA of 4.19.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
A Wild Card is still a possibility for Detroit, but they need to take advantage of playing the Royals in the motor city.
Detroit has been productive in the batter’s box and should have no problem making good contact against Volquez.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Detroit ML and game total under 9.5
Volquez has given up nine runs in his last two starts against the Tigers and a 5.45 ERA on the road.
I don’t look for either of those stats to improve on Sunday and think the Tigers are a smart bet with the under in this one.
