These two squads are separated just by 1.5 games in the standings of the American League Central division, and this weekend series could lean the balance towards one or the other.

Detroit will send Max Scherzer to the mountain with a 16-5 record this season and a 3.26 ERA.  In his last outing, Scherzer threw seven innings, allowing seven hits and four runs in the 8-6 victory over the Minnesota Twins.

“You try to get the edge,” Scherzer said about facing the Central opponents. “You try to find something that works. If a guy is having success against you, you try to come up with new ways to execute pitches. I can’t get into any specifics, but you try to do something different with your fastball, or you try to do something different with your curveball or change-up, use them in different situations to find some success.”

The Kansas City Royals will start pitcher James Shields, who had his worst outing of the season against the Tigers.

“This is why we play the game,” Shields told MLB’s official website. “This is why we grew up playing the game is for moments like this.”

The MLB Betting odds listed the Tigers +101 to win this game in the money line, and the Royals are -111.
