The Kansas City Royals will look to put some distance between them and second-place Minnesota when the host the Tigers on Monday night.
The Royals enter Game 1 of a three game series with 11.5-game lead over the Twins, and are playing well at Kauffman Stadium, where they are 14-3 there since the beginning of July.
KC has averaged 5.4 runs over their last 16 home games and had been hitting the ball well.
The Royals will send newly acquired Johnny Cueto (0-1, 3.46 ERA) to the bump on Monday, as they hope to grab their AL-best sixth consecutive home win.
Cueto meanwhile, is searching for his first victory at Kauffman after posting a 7-6, 11-inning loss at Toronto in his first start after Kansas City (66-44) acquired him from Cincinnati.
The right-hander allowed three runs over six innings versus the Blue Jays, after giving up two runs over seven innings in a 2-1 road loss to the Tigers (54-57).
The Tigers begin a challenging eight-game trip at Kansas City, and hope to avoid their 10th loss in 14 road games.
Their chances are good, since they have played fairly well against the Royals this season, has split 10 meetings with KC this season after taking two of three at Comerica Park last week.
Detroit is coming off a 7-2 home loss to Boston on Sunday, and with the exception of Ian Kinsler, who had two of the team’s four hits in that one, the Tigers offense is fading.
In an effort to get back on track, Detroit will counter with Matt Boyd (1-2, 7.90), who turned in a solid effort in his Detroit debut after he was acquired in the David Price trade.
Boyd yielded one run over seven innings to earn his first career victory his last time out, after going 0-2 with a 14.85 ERA in two starts with the Blue Jays.
