Tigers and Royals face off in a first-place showdown

With just 1 1/2 games separating the first-place Tigers from the second-place Royals, this four-game series (extended by a makeup from the April 3 rainout) the top spot in the American League Central is definitively on the line this week.

The Tigers have won both series against the Royals this season, taking two to open the season, and sweeping the series in Kansas City May 2-4.
