Royals, Tigers meet to sort out their recent struggles

Kansas City's best stretch of games this season came in Detroit. The reeling Royals are hoping history repeats itself during a three-game series that begins on Tuesday.

The Royals swept a four-game series in Detroit in late April and departed with a 14-7 record. They're now one game under .500 after dropping eight straight, including a three-game series against the Chicago White Sox over the weekend.

The visit to Detroit begins a seven-game road trip.
