Divisional bragging rights will be on the line on Thursday when the Detroit Tigers and the Kansas City Royals meet at Royals Stadium.

Michael Fulmer will be the starting pitcher for the Tigers on this day. Right hander Fulmer is 10-6 this season with a 3.06 ERA.

Meanwhile, it’ll be Danny Duffy who starts for the Royals. Left hander Duffy is 5-6 with a 3.51 ERA so far this season.

Fulmer improved to 4-0 with a 3.06 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in his last four outings on Saturday after allowing one run and only two hits in eight innings of an 11-1 rout versus Toronto. The 24-year-old struck out just three in that contest, but that’s of little concern considering his pitch count stayed low as he worked at least eight frames for the third time in four contests. “I’m worried about getting outs, and strikeouts mean more pitches,” Fulmer told reporters. “There are times when you want to try to strike a guy out, but I’m happy with a weak grounder to short.”

Duffy sustained his second straight loss and third in four outings on Saturday despite yielding one run and five hits in 8 1/3 innings of a 1-0 setback versus Texas. The lone run came in the ninth after the 28-year-old allowed a leadoff single by Jonathan Lucroy and, eventually, a game-winning base hit by Shin-Soo Choo. In addition to Upton, Duffy has struggled with Nicholas Castellanos (7-for-21) and Victor Martinez (12-for-35, three homers).

Oddsmakers currently have the Tigers listed as 113-moneyline favorites versus the Royals, while the game’s total is sitting at 9.

Michael Fulmer began his four-start winning streak by falling one out shy of a complete game versus the Kansas City Royals last month. The 2016 American League Rookie of the Year looks to continue his winning ways at the expense of the Royals on Thursday as the Detroit Tigers aim to exit Kauffman Stadium with a third victory in the finale of the four-game series.

The Tigers erupted for 19 runs in the first two contests of the series and 36 during their season high-tying four-game winning streak before seeing their offense go limp until Mikie Mahtook’s two-run homer in the ninth inning of Wednesday’s 4-3 setback. Justin Upton registered his fourth multi-hit performance in six games and looks to continue his success versus Danny Duffy, against whom he is 4-for-11 with two homers in his career. While Detroit failed to continue its recent momentum, Kansas City posted just its second win in nine overall contests and third in nine encounters with the Tigers this season to move within two games of AL Central-leading Cleveland. Mike Moustakas ripped a go-ahead RBI single in the seventh inning on Wednesday to give him three hits in his last two games, matching the total he accumulated over his previous five contests.

Kansas City won its last outing, a 4-3 result against the Tigers on July 19. Bettors who backed the Royals at -105 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Detroit was a 4-3 loser on the road against the Royals. Bettors on Kansas City at -105 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (7) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
