Tigers Vs. Royals: Starting Lineups For Saturday's Game

The Detroit Tigers will look to build some momentum heading into the All-Star break, gunning for their fourth win in a row in the second game of their series against the Kansas City Royals.

Doug Fister will take the mound for the Tigers, looking to add to his somewhat anemic win total for the season. He's 1-6 with a 4.61 ERA in 10 starts this year, but has a decent chance of turning things around against the Royals. Kansas City is 21st in the league in runs this year.

Starting for the Royals will be Bruce Chen, who comes into the game with a 7-7 record and a 4.83 ERA. He leads Kansas City in both wins and ERA.
