Tigers attempt to take series against reeling Royals

The Detroit Tigers will try to produce their second three-game winning streak of the season on Wednesday.

They took the opener of a three-game series against the visiting Kansas City Royals on Tuesday despite giving away a seven-run lead in the late going. Robbie Grossman, who drove in five runs, ripped a game-winning single into right field in the bottom of the ninth for an 8-7 victory.

"We didn't want to go down that way," Grossman said. "That would have been a long night. I'm glad we came through and that ball got through."
