The Tigers and Royals are part of the American League Central division.
Both teams have had an awful season and are languishing in the bottom two spots in the division. Kansas has a terrible (63-90) overall record, whereas Detroit (60-92) has fared even worse. There is hardly anything that separates the two teams in terms of their performances. However, they are on a decent 6-4 run, giving their fans something to cheer about.
The Tigers did the unexpected by defeating the Chicago White Sox away from home. Nobody expected them to win the series, but they did. That made their fans very happy, and the Tigers are confident of repeating a similar feat at home against the Royals.These sorts of performances towards the end of the season can build morale going into the next season.
The Royals, meanwhile, are also coming off a win against a very solid Seattle Mariners. Even though the playoffs dream is over for Kansas, getting wins is always welcome. It's exciting for the fans, even though there's nothing on the line. An enthralling series could ensue, despite both teams having little to play for.

Kansas City Royals vs Detroit Tigers: Pick
There isn't a lot to separate between the two pitchers for the game: Zack Greinke ( 4-9) plays for Kansas and Joey Wentz (2-2) for the Tigers. This will be a battle between a veteran and a rookie. The 38-year-old Greinke brings in a lot of experience, registering a 4.16 ERA season, while Wentz has a better ERA (3.13).
However, the numbers are misleading, as Wentz has only played five games to Greinke's 24 for the season. Against a weak Detroit team, Greinke's experience come come in handy.
Pick: Zack Greinke Total Strikeouts Over O 2.4 (-170)
