Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

This one started out badly for Tiger pitcher Max Scherzer and then went downhill. Alex Gordon of the Royals led off the game with a homer and Kansas City would put runs on the board in 5 of the first 6 innings. Scherzer didn’t make it out of the 4th inning and had already given up 7 runs to the Royals.

The final score was Kansas City 9, Tigers 5. That’s two straight losses for the first place Tigers, and 20 runs allowed by Detroit pitchers in those two games. The Tiger lead is now five games over the second place White Sox and 5.5 over third place Cleveland. The Tigers and Royals will play 3 more games at Comerica Park this week before the White Sox come to Detroit for a weekend showdown. The Tigers will send Doug Fister (3-1 with Det.) to the mound tomorrow night against K.C.’s Jeff Francis (5-14). 7:05 first pitch.

The Tigers and Royals will then play two straight afternoon games on Wednesday and Thursday. Thursday’s contest is a makeup from a rainout earlier this season.
