Free Detroit Tigers vs Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
I think you have to take the Tigers in this one. It seems like the Royals should be about ready mail it in this season.
I think Fulmer will come out and compete well in this one and look to take down the Royals non power hitting lineup. Ventura has been getting knocked around lately and I see that theme continuing to happen.
