The Kansas City Royals look to close out the first half of the season and head into the All-Star break by avoiding a three-game sweep to the Detroit Tigers. The Royals dropped Friday's series opener 4-2 and followed that up with an 8-7 loss on Sunday.
Everett Teaford gets the call for the Royals as he looks to build on a solid performance in his last start. Teaford allowed three runs in seven innings of an 11-3 win over Toronto last time out. Kansas City could use a good outing from a starting pitcher after seeing its starters post a 7.63 ERA in the last nine games.
Detroit will counter with Max Scherzer who had his last start skipped due to a hamstring injury. Scherzer has been really good of late going 2-1 with a 2.25 ERA over his last three starts.
