The Kansas City Royals are hosting the Detroit Tigers tonight in Major League Baseball action. The game is scheduled for an 8:15 p.m. start time and it will be televised live on MLB.tv. The MLB Odds for the game have the Tigers favored to pick up the win on the road.
Total: 9 runs (-115 under)
Justin Verlander gets the ball tonight for the Tigers, a team looking to find a way to get on a roll. Detroit's inconsistencies this season have them at 24-27 on the campaign, they find themselves four games back of the *surprise* Minnesota Twins in the American League Central.
Kansas City is in the AL Central cellar, at 21-29 the former best team in the American League is struggling. Last night they blew a couple of multiple-run leads over Detroit and have scored only 172 runs in their 50 games this season, the lowest amount of runs scored by any team in the league this season.
Verlander hasn't been the best this season, his struggles have come on the road where he's 2-3 with a 7.64 ERA. This will be the 42nd time he's facing Kansas City and he's 22-9 with a 3.23 ERA in those career starts. All-time in Kauffman Stadium, Verlander is 13-5 with a 2.98 ERA in 22 career starts.
Kansas City is starting rookie Eric Skoglund, a 6-foot-7 lefty.
