Tigers-Royals Preview

(AP) -- James Shields had his poorest outing of the season against the Detroit Tigers, while Max Scherzer's worst came versus the Kansas City Royals.

Neither of these staff aces, Shields in particular, can afford a repeat as the Tigers and Royals continue a crucial three-game series at Kauffman Stadium on Saturday.

The bulk of the pressure will be on Shields in the second game of the biggest series in the AL Central race after Kansas City (83-69) was crushed 10-1 in Friday's opener to fall 1 1/2 games behind first-place Detroit (85-68) in the division.
