The Royals and Tigers will come out of the gate here in the 2nd half with a giant series.
Both teams sit in the middle of the AL Central, looking to mount a comeback for the division title, along with battle for the Wild Card.
Both finished with some momentum in the 1st half and will try to carry that over here into the 2nd half.
Kansas City Royals
The defending champs made a giant impact over the All Star Break, as their selections in the All Star Game made a giant impact.
Eric Hosmer, who went on to MVP, started the scoring off and drove in a pair, while Salvador Perez added a 2 run home run to give the American League the lead, which they never gave back.
Kansas City enters play 0.5 game behind Detroit for 2nd and 7.0 back of Cleveland.
Ian Kennedy takes the hill here, who will try to make the impact worth the offseason signing.
Kennedy has had trouble keeping the ball in the park, as he’s allowed at least one home run in 7 straight starts.
In those 7 games, he’s compiled 13 home runs against. He goes against a red hot Tigers lineup, who he is 0-3 against.
The Tigers have been dominant against most teams not named the Cleveland Indians.
They finished the first half 1-11 against the 1st place Indians and will see them at the end of the season now.
For the time being, focusing on the teams right around them is important as it holds Wild Card implications at the very least.
The Tigers send out Justin Verlander, who has plenty of career success against the Royals. In 39 career starts, Verlander is a stellar 21-8 with a 3.26 ERA.
The Tigers RH has put together a solid 2 month span, going 6-3 with an ERA just over 3 in 12 starts.
