MLB Game Preview: Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals - Date: 6/11/2019 Royals chase elusive series win as Tigers visitFLMLosing can cause managers to get philosophical. Seeing defeats turn into lost series -- 16 in a row, to be exact -- and you might have another Plato on your hands.The Kansas City Royals have gone 0-14-2 in their past 16 series. Professional Handicappers. To make matters worse, they have lost 14 straight rubber games of series, dating back to the end of May 2018."You get in situations and you break the game down minutely and there's things that happen that you don't understand and they're great learning experiences, if you will," Kansas City manager Ned Yost told reporters after the Royals' 5-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox in a rubber game Sunday -- clinching Kansas City's fifth straight series loss.The Royals' latest chance for a series win begins Tuesday, when the Detroit Tigers come to Kansas City for the opener of a three-game set. Best Free Sports Picks. The Tigers are 5-1 in six games against the Royals in Detroit this season. Sports Handicapping Service Winning Streaks. The teams have yet to meet in Kansas City.But before shifting his focus to the Tigers, Yost further dissected Sunday's loss, and in particular Glenn Sparkman's approach to facing Chicago's Yoan Moncada with two outs and a runner in scoring position in the seventh inning and the Royals trailing 2-1. Moncada already had two hits against Sparkman, but Jose Abreu was on deck. So Sparkman pitched to Moncada, who laced his third hit of the day, an RBI single to left giving the White Sox an insurance run."Last thing you want is to make a pitch in the strike zone where he's going to get a hit off you," Yost said. "And, of course, he tried to bounce a curveball that didn't bounce. He left it over the plate, in the strike zone, and he ended up getting a hit." The Tigers themselves have lost three straight series, to the Braves, Rays and Twins. Their latest series loss came when Minnesota trounced them 12-2 on Sunday in the rubber match. The frustration for Detroit was epitomized by Nicholas Castellanos being doubled up at second base after heading for home with one out on a line drive to right. The ball was caught by Max Kepler, who threw to second for the easy double play.That was in the sixth inning and with the Tigers already down by 10.Though they had their chances in their last three series against three potential playoff teams, the Tigers have had their struggles. They've fared better the last few weeks than they did during their 0-9 homestand in May, when they lost four times by five or more runs. They're aware that there's still plenty of room for improvement."We knew this was going to be tough," Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire said following the Sunday loss. "We had a tough road trip. All we can do is keep competing and trying. We've got infielders all over the place, outfielders all over the place. We've got basically four starters. It's a challenge right now." The Tigers will throw Spencer Turnbull (3-5, 3.01 ERA) against Jakob Junis (4-6, 5.63) on Tuesday in a matchup of right-handers.Turnbull has faced the Royals twice -- both this season -- without a decision. He's allowed three earned runs in 13 innings, good for a 2.08 ERA. Junis is 6-1 with a 3.27 ERA against the Tigers in nine appearances (eight starts) in his career. He's only faced Detroit once this season, allowing three runs in six innings without factoring in the decision.Yost sees Junis as part of the long-term future of the Royals. And he hopes that pitchers like Sparkman can be part of it, as well. If so, Yost hopes that games like Sunday pay off down the line."Hopefully, when we get in that situation to compete for a championship, he's going to get in these situations and know how to handle them and to pitch accordingly," Yost said.--Field Level Media
