Royals Fall to .500 After Loss to Tigers
In a close game at Comerica Park, the Detroit Tigers edged the Kansas City Royals, 5-4. Detroit second baseman Raúl Aguilera earned the nod as player of the game. He went 3-4 with 2 doubles and a walk. Detroit is now 13-23.

A crucial at-bat came with runners on 1st and 2nd and one out in the bottom of the seventh inning. That's when third baseman Xavier Noonan, who is on pace to hit 36 home runs this season, hit a single. The Tigers went on to win.

"I'm proud of the boys for pulling through," said Tigers manager Mark Bellhorn. "The wins don't come easy for this team, but everyone's got an extra jump in their step after a game like this."
