The Kansas City Royals scored four runs in the first inning, and cruised to an 8-4 victory over the Detroit Tigers Saturday. Detroit starter Mike Pelfrey left the game with the bases loaded in the second inning. Reliever Dustin Molleken let a run score on a wild pitch, but then got a groundout to end the threat. The Tigers scored one in the first, and narrowed the gap to two on a two-run Ian Kinsler home run in the third. KC put the game away with three runs off Molleken and Kyle Ryan in the fifth inning.


The Tigers conclude that home set against Kansas City this afternoon. Michael Fulmer will face Yordano Ventura. Hear the first pitch at 1:10 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.

Outfielder Justin Upton will rejoin the Tigers today, after missing some time on the bereavement list. Detroit sent outfielder Steven Moya down to Toledo to make room.


An MRI has indicated that outfielder J.D. Martinez’ broken elbow is healing properly. He hopes to return to the lineup late this month.

The Milwaukee Brewers scored four runs in the first inning, and five in the third, and routed the Cincinnati Reds 9-1 Saturday. Hernan Perez and Jonathan Lucroy homered. Jimmy Nelson pitched seven shutout innings to get the win.

The Brewers play at Cincinnati again this afternoon. Zach Davies will pitch against Dan Straily.
