The Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals will both be trying to pick up a win on Wednesday when they battle at Royals Stadium.

The Tigers will give the ball to starter Matthew Boyd in this one. Left hander Boyd is 2-5 this season with a 5.40 ERA.

Boyd’s opponent in this one will be Ian Kennedy. The Royals right hander has a 4.43 ERA to go along with a 0-4 record this season.

Boyd is winless in his last seven starts and has not made it through six innings in the past three outings, allowing 14 runs over 12 1/3 frames in that stretch. The 26-year-old Oregon State product put together three straight quality starts while going 0-2 before the rough three-game run. Merrifield is 3-for-4 with four RBIs against Boyd, who is 1-3 with a 9.00 ERA in six career starts versus the Royals.

Kennedy gave up four runs and three hits over five innings of a no-decision last time out against Cleveland. The 32-year-old USC product has not completed six frames in any of his last four outings after recording three straight quality starts that averaged seven innings. Miguel Cabrera is 5-for-13 with two doubles versus Kennedy, who is 1-3 with a 3.79 ERA in six career starts against Detroit.

Oddsmakers currently have the Royals listed as 119-moneyline favorites versus the Tigers, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

The Kansas City Royals are trying to climb out of the cellar in the American League Central and can get a little closer to accomplishing that when they host the struggling Detroit Tigers in the rubber match of their three-game series on Wednesday. The Royals blanked the Tigers 1-0 on Tuesday to even the set and pull within 1 ½ games of passing them for fourth place in the division.

Eric Hosmer knocked in the only run and four pitchers limited Detroit to three hits while Whit Merrifield extended his hitting streak to 15 games with an infield single for the Royals. Ian Kennedy will try to record his first victory of the season for Kansas City, and the Tigers will counter with the struggling Matt Boyd in the series finale. Detroit has lost eight of 11 games and is just 12-18 on the road this season after striking out 10 times in Tuesday’s setback. Jose Iglesias registered one of the three hits and is 4-for-7 in the series while teammate Victor Martinez is 3-for-8 in the last two games for the Tigers, who are 6-20 when they score fewer than four runs.

Last time out for Kansas City, they were a 1-0 winner as they battled the Tigers on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Royals at 123 were rewarded, while the 1 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

The Tigers were a 1-0 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Royals. That made winners of bettors who got Kansas City at 123 on the moneyline, while the total score (1) was good news for UNDER bettors.
