Tigers Vs. Royals Final Score: Detroit Falls 1-0 On Wednesday Night

With the Chicago White Sox dropping the first two games of a four game series vs. the Baltimore Orioles this week, the Detroit Tigers had a prime opportunity to make up ground in the A.L. Central against the Kansas City Royals. But after dropping their second straight game in a 1-to-0 loss in K.C. on Wednesday night, the Tigers will now be looking to merely keep pace with Chicago.

For the second night in a row, the Tigers had the tying run in scoring position with one out in the ninth inning with Royals closer Greg Holland on the mound, but were unable to get the run home. In tonight's game it was Andy Dirks who stood on second base with one out, but Holland struck out both Delmon Young and Jhonny Peralta to secure the victory for Kansas City.

Detroit starter Anibal Sanchez took the loss, but pitched his best game a Tiger, allowing only seven hits and one run over seven innings.
