--- VS ---

Detroit Tigers VS Kansas City Royals
Sunday, August 18, 2013
Comerica Park, Detroit, MI
Game Time - 1:08 p.m. EDT



______________________________________



Pitching matchup



Tigers: RHP Max Scherzer (17-1, 2.85 ERA)

Scherzer didn't have his most dominant stuff last time out against the White Sox, but evaded the loss when Detroit came back to the tie game in an eventual defeat. Scherzer was a bit out of sync, but still turned in a quality start and fanned six.



Royals: LHP Bruce Chen (5-0, 1.62 ERA)

Chen pitched seven scoreless innings against the Marlins last Tuesday, giving up just three hits on three walks with six strikeouts. Since joining the rotation, he's 2-0 with a 0.93 ERA in six starts and has gone at least six innings in each start.

PREVIEW


KC looks to gain ground vs. Tigers, Scherzer
Royals send Chen to the hill; Detroit righty has MLB-best 17 wins

By Kathleen Gier / MLB.com | 8/17/2013 11:53 PM ET

The Royals have one more game this weekend to gain some ground against the Tigers in the American League Central race. After losing the first game of the five-game series, the Royals won both games of the doubleheader on Friday and lost on Saturday.

Left-hander Bruce Chen will take the mound for the Royals and be opposed by right-hander Max Scherzer in Sunday's rubber match at Comerica Park.

The third-place Royals are 7 1/2 games back of the first-place Tigers and 5 1/2 games out of the AL Wild Card race. It's a place unfamiliar for Kansas City, which hasn't been this close this late in the season in a decade.

"This is what you play for. You want to make sure that come August, September you're playing for something," Chen said. "I've been with Kansas City the last five years and this is the closest we've ever gotten to make a playoff run."

The Royals will have their work cut out for them against Scherzer, who has already defeated them twice this season. He is 4-0 since his last loss and a Major League-leading 17-1 on the season, with a 2.85 ERA. Scherzer gave up two earned runs on four hits with three walks and six strikeouts over six innings against the White Sox on Tuesday.

Scherzer is trying to become the fifth Major League pitcher since 1912 to go 18-1 or better. He would join the Yankees' Roger Clemens (2001), Pittsburgh's Roy Face (1959) and Brooklyn's Don Newcombe (1955) in accomplishing the feat. Rube Marquard of the New York Giants started out 18-0 in 1912.

"It's not so much my achievement. It's a team achievement," Scherzer said last week. "If I'm going to sit here and take credit for these wins and say I'm the reason why we're winning, I'd be pretty naïve. I definitely help the ballclub. I'm obviously doing things right. I'm pitching deep into games. I'm minimizing walks, doing everything I want to do.

"But at the same time, most of these games I'm pitching, I'm getting a ton of run support. These guys are putting quality at-bats together and our lineup is so deep. It's really a team effort every time I pitch that the guys are able to score runs and I'm able to minimize damage, and that's how we seem to get a win every time."

Chen started this season in the bullpen, but since switching to the starting rotation he's 2-0 with a 0.93 ERA in six starts (5-0 overall). This is the second time he's started a career 5-0. The first came in 2000, when he was with Atlanta and Philadelphia.

"I'm aware of the situation, but I'm not going to treat it any differently," Chen said. "I'm preparing myself, watching a lot of videos, have my game plan. The most important thing is I want to be myself."

In his last start, Chen pitched seven scoreless innings against the Marlins, scattering three hits and three walks. He carries an 18 2/3 innings scoreless streak into his start.

Royals: Moustakas returns to lineup
Third baseman Mike Moustakas returned to the lineup on Saturday, where he batted sixth and went 2-for-3 before Jamey Carroll pinch-hit for him in the seventh inning.

Moustakas missed five games with left calf tightness after leaving Monday night's game when he was injured running the bases.

He's batting .306 with 13 RBIs after the All-Star break.

Tigers: Infante and Cabrera battling injuries
Tigers second baseman Omar Infante returned from the disabled list a week ago and is still working on getting healthy. He missed more than a month with a left ankle sprain and returned on Monday, then had to exit Saturday's game due to back spasms.

Miguel Cabrera has been battling a strained abdomen for the past month in addition to a bruise on his shin and a sore knee that he hurt in an at-bat last week against the Yankees.

"I'm totally amazed what I'm seeing, because I can't believe what I'm seeing, to be honest with you," Detroit manager Jim Leyland said. "You just want to make sure when you see it every day that you just don't take it for granted."

Cabrera hit a walk-off homer on Saturday night.

Worth noting
• Royals second baseman Chris Getz has three multihit games this series, going 6-for-17 with three runs and an RBI.

• Tigers catcher Brayan Pena is batting .429 (15-for-35) with two doubles, a home run and three RBIs during his last 10 games.

STARTING LINEUPS:

Sunday’s lineups: Tigers vs. Royals
BECK'S BLOG

Jim Leyland hadn’t received any follow-up report on Omar Infante when he filled out his lineup card this morning, but he figured a day out of the lineup ahead of Monday’s off-day might be worthwhile to make sure Infante’s back issues don’t linger. Infante left Saturday’s game with lower back stiffness.

Bruce Chen has a serious case of reverse splits going on so far this season. Left-handed hitters are batting .270 (24-for-89) off Chen, compared to a .177 average (31-for-175, 38 strikeouts) for right-handed batters. For his career, the reverse splits amount to a 26-point difference in batting average. Andy Dirks follows those trends, batting 5-for-14 against Chen. He gets the start in left field over Matt Tuiasosopo, who has never faced Chen.

On the KC side, Mike Moustakas is out of the lineup again after playing six innings of Saturday’s game at third base.

TIGERS (career numbers off Chen)

   Austin Jackson, CF (8-for-31, HR, 3 walks, 7 K’s)
   Torii Hunter, RF (4-for-17, HR, 2 walks, 2 K’s)
   Miguel Cabrera, 3B (13-for-32, 4 HR, 8 walks, 6 K’s)
   Prince Fielder, 1B (5-for-13, HR, 2 walks, 3 K’s)
   Victor Martinez, DH (2-for-4, HR, walk, K)
   Andy Dirks, LF (5-for-14, K)
   Brayan Pena, C
   Ramon Santiago, 2B (3-for-9, 2 K’s)
   Jose Iglesias, SS

P: Max Scherzer

ROYALS (career numbers off Scherzer)

   David Lough, RF (1-for-3, HR, K)
   Eric Hosmer, 1B (5-for-18, 2 walks, 4 K’s)
   Billy Butler, DH (11-for-41, 2 walks, 7 K’s)
   Alex Gordon, LF (8-for-22, HR, 7 walks, 4 K’s)
   Salvador Perez, C (6-for-12, 2 HR)
   Emilio Bonifacio, 3B (3-for-5, walk, K)
   Chris Getz, 2B (4-for-11, 2 walks)
   Alcides Escobar, SS (7-for-24, 2 HR, 3 K’s)
