The Royals have won nine of their last 10 games when scoring four or more runs.

The Royals are 7-0 in their last 7 games as a favorite, 7-1 in their last 8 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Tigers last 5 overall. The under is 5-2 in Royals last 7 overall. The Tigers are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Kansas City.
Last game of the season for both of these teams, this simply comes down to pride and who wants to be on the field. The Kansas City Royals have played the better baseball over the last couple of weeks and they have the pitching advantage in this spot. The Detroit Tigers have been a rough sell all season long and their pitching staff has been rough to say the least. It's Royals or pass in this spot.
