Tigers try to protect share of first place vs. KC

For just the second time in nearly 10 weeks, the Tigers woke up Wednesday morning with a share of the lead in the American League Central Division. With eight games to go, they're in a dead heat with the Chicago White Sox. Starting with Wednesday night's game against the Royals, the Tigers have two more regular-season games at Comerica Park before heading out on the road to close out the season in Minnesota and Kansas City.

Rick Porcello (9-12) takes the mound trying to earn his first win since Aug. 7. His stats in that span: 0-6, 4.42 ERA, 38.2 IP, 52 hits, 25K/10BB, .313 AVG/.354 OBP/.476 SLG/.830 OPS allowed.
