The Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals will meet on the field at Royals Stadium on Monday in a battle of division rivals.

Right hander Jordan Zimmermann will take the mound for the Tigers to start this game. Zimmermann is 5-7 this season with a 5.87 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Jason Vargas who starts for the Royals. Left hander Vargas is 12-3 with a 2.62 ERA so far this season.

Zimmermann suffered his third loss during a six-game winless streak July 7 at Cleveland, giving up five runs on eight hits and a walk over three-plus innings. The two-time All-Star is 0-2 with a 9.95 ERA over his last three outings after stringing together four quality starts to begin June (1-1, 2.36). Zimmermann has been masterful against the Royals in his career while going 2-0 with a 1.44 ERA in four appearances (three starts), including 1-0, 1.04 in three games (two starts) in 2016.

Vargas escaped with a no-decision July 5 to extend his unbeaten streak to eight games despite a rare poor performance in Seattle, surrendering a season-high three homers among the six runs he allowed in five frames. Despite the uncharacteristic effort, the 34-year-old first-time All-Star ranks first in the AL in wins and second in ERA. Cabrera is among one of five Detroit regulars hitting over .300 against Vargas, who is 3-4 with a 5.37 ERA in 10 starts against the Tigers.

Oddsmakers currently have the Royals listed as 151-moneyline favorites versus the Tigers, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

If the Kansas City Royals aren’t able to win the American League Central this season, they won’t need to look any further than their struggles inside the division as to why they fell short. After snapping a five-game losing streak Sunday, the Royals hope to move back one game over .500 one day later as they welcome the Detroit Tigers for the opener of a four-game set.

Kansas City avoided getting swept over the weekend when Texas right fielder Shin-Soo Choo lost Lorenzo Cain’s routine fly in the sun with two outs in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday, allowing the game-winning run to score in a 4-3 win over the Rangers. The Royals (45-45), who are only two games behind division-leading Cleveland despite not climbing over the break-even mark until June 24, have not been nearly as fortunate inside the Central – going 13-21 against their division rivals. That record includes a 2-4 mark against Detroit, which scored 17 runs over the final two games of its home set against Toronto over the weekend to take the series. The Tigers withstood three homers from the Blue Jays and used three free passes in the 11th inning to pull out a 6-5 victory Sunday, including the first walk-off walk of Miguel Cabrera’s career.

Kansas City won its last outing, a 4-3 result against the Rangers on July 16. Bettors who backed the Royals at 123 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

Detroit was a 6-5 winner in its last match on the road against the Blue Jays. They won as -120 favorites, while the total score of 11 made winners of OVER bettors.
