The Detroit Tigers look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Tigers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last 10 games. The Tigers have won five of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Ian Kinsler and Miguel Cabrera have combined for 74 hits and 35 RBI while Yoenis Cespedes has 17 RBI. The Detroit Tigers have split their last six games on their home field. Shane Greene takes the hill, and he’s 3-2 with a 5.56 ERA and 21 strikeouts this season. This will be Greene’s second career game against the Royals.
The Royals are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 23-9 in their last 32 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Tigers are 4-0 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series and 35-17 in their last 52 vs. American League Central. The Royals are 5-11 in the last 16 meetings.
The Detroit Tigers laid an egg in Saturday's loss and will be eager to bounce back at home under the lights. With Greene on the mound, who has had some OK starts, I like the home team to get the victory.
