Detroit Tigers AT Kansas City Royals
Monday, June 10, 2013
Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City, MO
Game Time - 8:10 p.m. EDT



______________________________________



Pitching matchup


Tigers: RHP Doug Fister (5-3, 3.27 ERA)

Fister is 0-2 in his past three outings, despite having a 21-innings scoreless streak until the ninth inning Wednesday. The Tigers haven't scored a run with him on the mound in his past 16 1/3 innings pitched.



Royals: RHP Jeremy Guthrie (6-3, 3.66 ERA)

It took Guthrie an inning to find his command on Wednesday, but he returned to winning form and held the Twins to just one run on six hits in six innings. He improved to 4-1 at home and has pitched at least six innings in 11 of his 12 starts.

PREVIEW
Tigers, Royals set for AL Central showdown in KC
Fister to square off with Guthrie in opener of three-game series

By Adam Berry / MLB.com | 6/9/2013 6:55 PM ET

Two of the American League's hottest teams will put their winning streaks on the line on Monday, kicking off a three-game series between two Central division rivals.

The Tigers, who have won four straight after a sweep of the Indians, will travel to Kauffman Stadium to face the Royals, who have won five in a row against the Twins and Astros. Kansas City will have to turn its attention from Houston, which has the worst record in the AL, to Detroit, which leads the AL Central by 5 1/2 games.

Monday night's series opener will see Royals right-hander Jeremy Guthrie take the mound against Tigers righty Doug Fister, who's gone 0-2 over his past three starts despite a 21-inning scoreless streak that ended in the ninth inning of Wednesday's outing. The reason for that disparity? The Tigers haven't scored a run with him on the mound in his last 16 1/3 innings.

Of course, that could change quickly with Miguel Cabrera at the plate. For whatever reason, the reigning AL MVP is especially effective at Kauffman Stadium. He has more hits there (68) than he does at any other visiting ballpark and sports a .366 career average at The K with 13 doubles, 10 homers and 40 RBIs.

"What this kid is doing, though, you've got to think about, there's some things to factor in," Indians manager Terry Francona said. "One is, he's got Prince [Fielder] behind him, which is huge, because teams feel an obligation to pitch to him a lot more than you want to. That's a good move by the Tigers. And Victor [Martinez] behind him is, in my opinion, the best protection hitter in baseball. He's a switch-hitter. He can hit good pitching. He doesn't strike out. He's the ultimate protection guy. So he's got that going for him.

"Now, saying that, he's hitting in one of the worst hitters' ballparks I've ever seen. I mean, to be a power hitter here [in Detroit]? And to put up the numbers he's hitting? So, what he's doing is unbelievable. If you're a baseball fan, it's awesome. If you're trying to beat him, it's not so good."

But that's what Guthrie will attempt to do on Monday night. He's coming off a strong outing against the Twins on Wednesday, although it took him an inning to get his command going. Nevertheless, Guthrie held Minnesota to only one run on six hits over six innings, improving to 4-1 at home.

Guthrie has pitched at least six innings in 11 of his 12 starts this season. It took quite an effort just to get that deep on Wednesday, as he battled through a 39-pitch first inning before grinding through five more frames without a walk or a run scored.

"The bright light went on and I said if I walk three guys in an inning I probably won't go very long," Guthrie said after that start.

Tigers: Jackson set to begin rehab stint
Center fielder Austin Jackson will join Triple-A Toledo on a rehab assignment on Monday. He is expected to first serve as the Mud Hens' designated hitter before increasing his workload in the outfield on Tuesday. He'll take an off-day with Toledo on Wednesday before the club starts a four-game series at Syracuse on Thursday. But ideally, Tigers manager Jim Leyland said, Jackson won't be sticking around with the Mud Hens for too long.

"There's a possibility he could join us in Minnesota," Leyland said, referring to the Tigers' weekend series against the Twins.

Jackson hasn't played since May 12 because of a pulled left hamstring. The Tigers hoped at first that he wouldn't be out for long, but it turned out to be a four-week stay on the disabled list due to lingering soreness in the area.

Royals: Cain, Escobar returning
Center fielder Lorenzo Cain and shortstop Alcides Escobar will be back in the lineup Monday night after sitting out Sunday's series finale against the Astros. Escobar is 2-for-18 on the Royals' current homestand. Cain has hit better -- 10-for-33 over his last nine games, including eight with at least one hit -- but manager Ned Yost prefers to give him regular rest due to his history of leg injuries.

"You try to do it when they're struggling a little bit, because you darn sure don't want to do it when they're hot," Yost said. "Escobar's played in just about every game, [Alex Gordon, who sat out Saturday] played in every game, we try to give Cain a break every seven to 10 days to keep his legs underneath him. Detroit's coming in for a big series, and a day game is tough on guys that have been playing every day."

Gordon sat out Saturday after a 10-for-57 stretch, but returned Sunday, going 1-for-4 with an RBI, including the go-head single in the eighth, and a run scored in Kansas City's 2-0 win over Houston.

Worth noting
• Guthrie doesn't boast particularly impressive numbers against Detroit's hitters. Collectively, they've hit .314/.371/.462 in 175 plate appearances against Guthrie. Cabrera has hit Guthrie well, going 9-for-26 with two homers.

• Fister, meanwhile, has enjoyed a little more success against the Royals' lineup. Kansas City's hitters have posted a .266/.311/.385 batting line in 121 plate appearances against Fister. Billy Butler has six hits in 19 at-bats against the right-hander, but they've all been singles.

Game 62: Fister’s run support woes, take 4
BECK'S BLOG
Posted on June 11, 2013 at 9:21 am

Doug Fister is a 6-foot-8 pitcher who can field his position like an infielder. He can pound hitters into groundouts, or he can use his breaking ball to rack up strikeouts. With a healthy season so far, he’s reminding people how effective he can be when he can take the ball every five games and get the repetitions his health never really allowed him last year until the stretch run and postseason.

What he cannot do at this point is score runs for himself. That, at this point, is the hang-up.

The numbers over Fister’s last four starts are pretty good: 30 1/3 innings, 28 hits, nine runs earned, three walks and 26 strikeouts. He has pitched at least seven innings in each of those four games, pitched into the ninth inning June 5 against the Rays, then pitched an eight-inning complete game loss in Kansas City last night.

“Actually, if we had taken the lead, I was going to put him back out there [for the ninth],” manager Jim Leyland said.

He’s 0-3 in these last four starts, in no small part because the Tigers have scored four runs total over those last four outings. He went back-to-back outings without the Tigers scoring a run for him.

“Man, I feel so bad for him,” Torii Hunter said. “He’s been pitching his butt off. We just can’t get a win for him right now. He keeps going out there, he keeps chucking the ball. Eventually, we’re going to get something going for him.”

His second start in this four-start stretch made him the first Tiger in history (or at least since 1916, as far back as the data goes) to pitch seven or more scoreless innings with 12 or more strikeouts and not get a win. Last night added him to the complete-game loss category, which has been pretty rare for the Tigers under Jim Leyland.

Seven Tigers have pitched complete-game losses since 2006. Justin Verlander has four of them, including two last season. Fister is the first Tigers pitcher other than Verlander to throw a complete-game loss since Armando Galarraga did it in his final start as a Tiger, taking a 2-1 loss at Baltimore on Oct. 2, 2010.

“I felt good, felt strong,” Fister said after the game. “I appreciate the confidence that [Leyland] has in me.”

Play of the game: Salvador Perez’s third-inning triple not only drove in two games, it put him in position to score the go-ahead run two batters later on Lorenzo Cain’s infield single. It was a ball hit in right-center field enough that both Avisail Garcia and Torii Hunter went after it until the last second, leaving no one backing up the play once the ball got by Garcia’s diving attempt.

Out of the game: Miguel Cabrera generally pounds Royals pitching, but he’s now 0-for-6 lifetime against Aaron Crow. Ned Yost went to him in the seventh inning after Jeremy Guthrie hit Andy Dirks on a two-strike pitch to put the potential go-ahead run on base and move the tying run into scoring position.

Crow could have opted to walk Cabrera and load the bases after falling behind on a 2-0 count. Instead, he spotted a slider for strike one, got Cabrera to foul back a 95 mph fastball to even up the count, then sent down the Triple Crown winner swinging at another slider to end the inning.

Line of the night: Guthrie didn’t strike out a single batter over 6 1/3 innings, and walked three, but still held Detroit to two runs on six hits over 6 1/3 innings to improve to 7-3.

Stat of the night: 6 — Inherited runners stranded by Crow in four June outings. He allowed half of his 10 inherited runners to score in May.
