Detroit Tigers fall to Kansas City Royals, 3-1: Game thread recap

·1 min read

Detroit Tigers (74-78) vs. Kansas City Royals (65-83)

When: 7:10 p.m. Friday.

Where: Comerica Park.

TV: Bally Sports Detroit.

Radio: WXYT-FM (97.1; other radio affiliates).

BOX SCORE

Probable starting pitchers: Tigers RHP Casey Mize (7-8, 3.64 ERA) vs. Royals RHP Carlos Hernandez (6-2, 3.90 ERA).

Game notes: The Tigers are four games under .500 with 10 to play: three this weekend against the Royals, a makeup game Monday against the Chicago White Sox, three on the road against the Minnesota Twins next week and a three-game finale against the White Sox in Chicago next weekend. On Friday, it'll be a party in the stands for Miguel Cabrera as the Tigers honor him for homer No. 500 from last month; he's still 21 hits away from No. 3,000, which means he won't get there today despite hitting .321 this month. Tonight should also feature a short start from Casey Mize, on a limited pitch count for the rest of the season, which could be a good thing; few teams have tagged Mize as well as the Royals, who have scored 16 runs over 28⅓ innings off the rookie this year.
