Kansas City Royals Vs. Detroit Tigers Wednesday Lineups

The Kansas City Royals take on the Detroit Tigers tonight, looking to snap their early six-game losing streak. To do so, they're going to have to beat up on one of Detroit's promising young starters, Max Scherzer -- and they'll also need Jonathan Sanchez to tame Detroit's potent lineup.

Here are the starting lineups for Wednesday night's contest between the Royals and Tigers:

Detroit Tigers

Austin Jackson, CF
Brennan Boesch, RF
Miguel Cabrera, 3B
Prince Fielder, 1B
Delmon Young, DH
Ryan Raburn, LF
Jhonny Peralta, SS
Brandon Inge, 2B
Gerald Laird, C

Max Scherzer, SP

Kansas City Royals

Alex Gordon, LF
Yuniesky Betancourt, 2B
Eric Hosmer, 1B
Billy Butler, DH
Jeff Francoeur, RF
Mike Moustakas, 3B
Humberto Quintero, C
Mitch Maier, CF
Alcides Escobar, SS

Jonathan Sanchez, SP

Betancourt, as you may have noticed, has moved up to the second spot in the lineup, a night after hitting seventh. Brayan Pena and Jason Bourgeois are not in tonight's lineup, either, as KC looks to snap their losing skid.
