The Tigers (32-14) will go for yet another sweep (they have 6 so far) today in Kansas City as they face the Royals (10-34) in the final game of a 4 game series.
The Tigers will send out Mike Maroth (5-2) in this final game. Maroth owns the best ERA on the Tigers this season and ranks third in the AL with a 2.45. He will go up against the Royals Denny Bautista (0-2, 3.75). Bautista has only started 5 games this season due to injury.
The Royals have lost 12 straight games. Things aren't looking good for Kansas City (similar to what we went through in 2003). I feel bad for Buddy Bell and the boys, but I hope the Tigers add to that losing streak today.
The game is set for 2:10pm and can be heard on WXYT in Detroit.
