Game 107 Thread: Royals vs. Tigers Finale

New, comments

Winner take all! And by 'all' I mean 'the series' but it's still important. Maybe.

The first two games of this series vs. the Tigers have been bipolar: an awesome victory on Tuesday where Danny Duffy pitched seven brilliant innings and a horrible loss against yet another rookie lefty yesterday. Hopefully today is more of the former than the latter.
According to the illustrious Andy McCullough, the Royals will send this lineup for the rubber game:

The Royals will throw fire. Starter Yordano Ventura will be assisted by not being in Canada, and Miguel Cabrera, perhaps the best player of his generation, is out with an injury.

The Tigers line up thusly:
