Royals limp into final homestand with opener vs. Tigers

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Royals will open their final homestand on Tuesday with the first three games against the Detroit Tigers.

Barring a miracle of Biblical proportions, the Royals will not rise to extend their season into the playoffs. Their "tragic" number is one after their Monday loss to the New York Yankees, meaning one loss or one Minnesota victory will result in Kansas City being official eliminated.

The Royals went 4-7 on their four-city final trip and ended with a 37-44 road record. They are four games below .500.
