Royals Vs. Tigers: Offense Quiet Again As Detroit Sweeps Kansas City

The Royals were never able to find success at the plate as Tigers pitching stifled the Kansas City bats for the third straight night and Detroit won 4-3 on Wednesday night.

The Royals scored six runs in the three-game sweep. For their part, the Royals pitchers only allowed 10 runs over the three games. Jonathan Sanchez wasn't credited with a quality start, but he gave up just two earned runs over five innings. Sanchez left with a 3-2 lead, as the Royals scored two in the bottom of the third on a home run by Alcides Escobar and one in the fourth on a double by Humberto Quintero.

But Kelvin Herrera gave up the lead with a run in the top of the seventh and Jose Mijares gave up another in the inning and eventually was credited with the loss.

Billy Butler went 2-for-3 with a run scored and a walk. The Royals have now lost seven in a row and are 0-6 at home.
