Tuesday, June 15, 2021

(KANSAS CITY) – Detroit starter Matthew Boyd and reliever Alex Lange both exited with injuries and the Tigers still ended a three-game losing streak, beating the Kansas City Royals 10-3 Monday night. Willi Castro, Robbie Grossman and Niko Goodrum homered for Detroit. LINKC. Miguel Cabrera got three hits and drove in two runs, with his RBI single keying a four-run first inning. The Royals, who have not led since finishing off Thursday's 6-1 victory in Oakland, lost their fourth in a row. They are a season-worst five games below .500. Boyd departed in the third because of discomfort in his left arm. Lange left after recording just one out in the fifth with shoulder trouble. Boyd told the team trainer that his arm had felt odd the whole inning. Manager A.J. Hinch said he didn't know if Boyd would miss any time. Royals starter Brad Keller (6-6) struggled throughout, allowing six earned runs and eight hits in five innings. Joe Jimenez (2-0) got the win for the Tigers. Castro hit a two-run homer in the fourth. Goodrum connected in the eighth and Grossman homered in the ninth.
