Royals try to rolling against Tigers

DETROIT -- Ian Kennedy didn't get a lot of run support early in the season. That has changed dramatically in the past two months.

The Kansas City Royals won seven of the past eight games started by the veteran right-hander. They averaged 5.9 runs during that stretch.

The Royals' offense provided a comfort level for all of the team's starters in the past week, as Kansas City carries a seven-game winning streak into its Wednesday game at Detroit. Kennedy will start against the Tigers in the finale of the three-game series.
