The division rival Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers are set to renew hostilities on Wednesday when they meet at Comerica Park.

Ian Kennedy will be the starting pitcher for the Royals on this day. Right hander Kennedy is 1-6 this season with a 4.95 ERA.

Kennedy’s opponent in this one will be Daniel Norris. The Tigers left hander has a 4.65 ERA to go along with a 4-5 record this season.

Kennedy was fortunate to come away with a no-decision last Wednesday against Boston after giving up four runs (two earned) on three hits – two homers – and three walks over 4 2/3 innings. After allowing one homer over his first three starts, the 32-year-old USC product has surrendered 13 over his last 10 outings, including at least one in 10 straight. Kennedy was tagged for five runs in three frames of a loss versus the Tigers on May 31, dropping him to 1-4 with a 4.66 ERA in seven starts against them.

Norris was unable to win a third straight start after taking the loss Thursday at Seattle, permitting five runs on five hits over six innings. Control continues to be a problem for the 24-year-old Tennessee native, who has issued three free passes in three of his last four outings and thrown at least 96 pitches despite not working more than six frames each time. Norris is 0-1 with a 3.81 ERA in five starts versus the Royals, including a no-decision on May 29 in which he yielded three runs across five innings.

Oddsmakers currently have the Tigers listed as 134-moneyline favorites versus the Royals, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

The 2017 edition of the Detroit Tigers has not fared well against unfamiliar opponents, but no American League Central team has done better inside the division. The Tigers eye their sixth straight victory against division foes Wednesday when they continue a three-game set against the visiting Kansas City Royals.

Detroit stopped an eight-game skid with Sunday’s triumph over San Diego to avoid going winless on a seven-game West Coast road trip, improving to 17-31 outside the division. The Tigers returned home and resumed their winning ways inside Central on Tuesday, getting homers from J.D. Martinez and Miguel Cabrera en route to a 5-3 victory and boosting their division record to 17-11. Kansas City (37-38), which won 11 of 13 from June 10-24 to climb over .500 for the first time this season, has dropped consecutive games to fall back under the break-even mark. The Royals’ AL-worst offense started fast in the opener with three runs and five hits before Justin Verlander recorded an out, but the former Cy Young Award winner recovered and combined with three relievers to hold Kansas City to six singles the rest of the way.

Last time out for Detroit, they were a 5-3 winner as they battled the Royals on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Tigers at -141 were rewarded, while the 8 combined runs moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Kansas City lost its last outing, a 5-3 result against the Tigers on June 27. Bettors who backed the Tigers at -141 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (8) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.
