Its the struggling Zach/k Gre/inke (2-11, 6.05 ERA) against Kevin Millwood (3-8, 3.38 ERA) tonight in Cleveland, as the Royals look to rebound from last night's unjust loss. As the Royals partially did with the Tigers last week, any success against the Tribe in this series would have to be seen as the Royals playing spoiler. After getting swept by the Sox to start the second-half, the Indians are quickly seeing their season's hopes flitter away.
Perhaps Vintage Greinke can return tonight, as Zach looks to improve on his 6.05 season ERA and his 6.75 ERA in July. On the road, Greinke is 1-6, with a 6.19 ERA, which could also use some improvement. As a team, as we all know, the Royals are terrible on the road, failing in all facets of the game and posting a 13-33 record. We'll see if that can change tonight.
