The Royals and Tigers meet Tuesday for the start of a three-game series in an AL Central showdown.
The Tigers enter Monday in the basement of the AL Central, sitting ten games behind the first place Chicago White Sox. Their last contest was rained out on Sunday, leaving them with a two-game weekend split of the Minnesota Twins.
The Tigers have struggled to generate offense throughout the season, but managed to get an offensive outburst in their win on Saturday. Robbie Grossman and Harold Castro both put up three hits to lead the way. Detroit posted a five run seventh inning to break a 2-2 tie and spring themselves to a win.
The Tigers go to their ace Tuesday in Matthew Boyd, who makes his seventh start of the year. He comes in 2-3 with a 2.27 ERA, a 0.925 WHIP, seven walks and 24 strikeouts over 35.2 innings of work this season. Boyd has struggled against the Royals in his career, owning a 7-10 record and 5.71 ERA versus Kansas City in his career.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City got off to one of the hottest starts in baseball this year, but have since gone into a tailspin. They were swept by both the Indians and White Sox at home and have lost eight consecutive games. The Royals are now three and a half games out of first in the AL Central
Kansas City’s offense hasn’t been able to get much going lately. Whit Merrifield was the only member of the Royals to have multiple hits in their last game.
Like Boyd, Brady Singer will make his seventh start of the year for Kansas City. 1-3 with a 3.41 ERA, a 1.172 WHIP, 11 walks and 29 strikeouts over 29 innings of work on the season. In his career against the Tigers, he is 3-0 with a 1.44 ERA, a 0.64 WHIP, three walks and 24 strikeouts over 25 innings of work

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Neither team provides much value at this point, but I’ll go with the Royals here in what should be a low-scoring game as well. Singer has a great track record against Detroit and Boyd has struggled when facing Kansas City throughout his time in the majors. Anytime you can get a team at odds as good as -130 against the Tigers, you’ll take it. With the way these offenses have been performing, the under is the smart play here as well.
