A disappointing loss last night leads the Tigers (42-45)into game 2 of this series against the last place Royals (31-57). D.J. Carrasco (4-3) will take the mound for KC today and face the Tigs for the first time in his career. The Tigers will send out lefty Nate Robertson (3-7), fresh off an ejection in Tampa Bay. Nate has been very unlucky with run support this year, in fact the last game he had any kind of support he got thrown out after one pitch.
Game time is 7:05 at CoPa. You can catch the game on FSN Detroit and WXYT 1270.
Jose Lima gets the start for the Royals. Carrasco had some shoulder soreness.
