The Score: Royals 10 – Tigers 4

The Gist: The Tigers were in this one until Miguel Cabrera dropped a two-out popup in foul territory giving Jose Guillen the chance to hammer a three-run two-run homer. Max Scherzer allowed five runs in as many innings but only two were earned. Turn the page on this one.

The Quote: “We’ll take a game like this.” — Kansas City manager Trey Hillman

The Stat: 4 – The number of errors the Tigers committed on Monday. None more costly than Cabrera’s.

Up Next: Dontrelle Willis (0-0, 3.00 ERA) vs. Brian Bannister (0-0, 1.50 ERA) — 1:05 p.m. ET | FSD/1270 & 97.1
