The Detroit Tigers lost an ugly 12-9 game to the Kansas City Royals yesterday afternoon. Detroit starter Matt Boyd pitched to only five batters, giving up two singles, a double, a triple, a homer, and four runs. KC extended the lead with a pair of third-inning home runs. Detroit began a comeback with a Victor Martinez grand slam in the bottom of the third, but could never close the gap. Justin Upton also homered for Detroit.

The Tigers begin a four-game home set against the Cleveland Indians tonight. Buck Farmer will start against Corey Kluber. Hear the first pitch at 7:10 on AM 1400 and FM 99.3, WCCY.

The Indians also lost yesterday, but need only one more win, or one Detroit loss, to clinch the American League Central Division title. Toronto and Baltimore both won, so Detroit now trails the Orioles by a game and a half in the race for the final American League wild card playoff berth.

The Milwaukee Brewers fell to the Cincinnati Reds 4-2 yesterday. Wily Peralta gave up three runs over six innings, and took the loss.

The Brewers open an interleague series against the Texas Rangers in Arlington tonight. Matt Garza will pitch against Martin Perez.

The final one came with three-and-a-half minutes remaining, but the Packers were able to hold on for the win.

In last night’s game, the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Chicago Bears 31-17.

Tonight, the Atlanta Falcons visit the New Orleans Saints.
