Tigers Halt KC Win Streak at 10

Posted by Matt on June 19, 2014

Early on, it seemed Kansas City would take their winning ways up to 11.

Billy Butler’s RBI double in the first inning got the Royals off to a good start, but they never scored again, and the Detroit Tigers got a 2-1 win Thursday afternoon at Comerica Park.

Danny Duffy ran into trouble in the fourth inning, when a Miguel Cabrera RBI double and J.D. Martinez home run provided all the offense Detroit needed. Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez threw seven innings of one-run baseball in the victory, allowing only five hits.

Kansas City remains a half-game ahead of Detroit for the AL Central lead entering Friday’s game against the Seattle Mariners. James Shields takes the hill for the Royals against Hisashi Iwakuma at 7:10 pm at Kauffman Stadium.
