The Detroit Tigers will continue to try and pull upsets here this Saturday, as they take on a pretty decent Kansas City Royals team at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City.
The Tigers are now 7-2 in their last 9 which is pretty incredible based on the roster this team has put together and they very well could pick up a series win if the Kansas City Royals do not show up with their A-game.
The Tigers last series was particularly impressive, as they were able to clean sweep the Seattle Mariners off the back of some really strong starting pitching performances and some nice jobs by the bullpen.
This team’s pitching unit will face a better batting lineup here in the Royals however, so it will be interesting to see how they pitch against one of the more underrated batting units in the major leagues.
Matthew Boyd will head to the hill for this one and he is no stranger to this Royals team as this will be his third start of the year against Kansas City. From an overall perspective he has great stats coming in here with a 2.45 ERA, but he has also dominated the Royals so far only allowing 1 earned run over 14 innings of work this year.
Kansas City Royals
The Royals are now 4-2 in their last 6 games which is music to the ears of KC fans, as that 4-2 run has come off the back of a brutal 11 game losing streak which completely erased all of their hard work from the start of the season, as they were rolling early on.
Catcher Salvador Perez has been very good so far this season, but he is not the only one contributing on offense with guys like Merrifield and Benintendi having decent seasons as well and if they want to turn around their luck against Boyd and the Tigers they will need to show up in a big way here.
Brady Singer will be the man on the mound for the home team on Saturday and I would look for him to have a strong outing here, as he gets an A+ matchup and has been pitching will in general with an ERA just under 4.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
The Detroit Tigers and in particular their pitcher have had plenty of success against the Royals, but now that this KC team appears to be playing better off the back of that losing streak I think they can turn the tide here and cash as home favorites in this spot.
