Royals 6, Tigers 2
After walking off on Friday, the Tigers got off to a rocky start from which they could not recover on Satuday. Anibal Sanchez (7 GS, 43 IP, 5.44 ERA, 4.15 FIP) gave up a home run on the first pitch of the game and then another run two batters later. The 2nd inning wasn’t any better, as the Tigers found themselves down 4-0 before they batted a second time. Each team added two runs after that, and the Tigers saw some signs of life from Victor Martinez, but they couldn’t get to Guthrie the way they should have and Sanchez couldn’t hold the Royals off the board. We got to see a great throw from Cespedes and Alburquerque only allowed one base runner, if you’re looking for the positives. It’ll be Shane Greene (6 GS, 34 IP, 5.56 ERA, 3.74 FIP) Sunday to win the series.
