Game Notes: The Tigers fell in the third of this four-game series, thanks in large part to a listless offense. Bullpen was asked to bowl more than six innings after Matt Manning was injured and conceded just two runs in that period. But the Tigers could not score in the last several innings of the game and would look to win the series on Sunday.
It has been a low-scoring affair – no team has scored more than four runs in any one game. Sikandar will try to play his part in keeping that trend alive. He scored four runs on Tuesday in a 5⅓ innings versus the Boston Red Sox, conceding five hits and three runs.
Hernandez is making his 16th start of his MLB career and fourth against the Tigers. He has 5.84 ERA in 12⅓ innings, which includes a relief appearance. Hernandez made no decision last time, conceding four runs in six hits in 4⅓ innings versus the Cleveland Guardians.
Both teams are closed on Monday, with the Royals starting a series on Tuesday versus the Minnesota Twins and the Tigers starting a series with the New York Yankees.
