Lorenzen triumphed in his most recent start against the Mariners on the road on Saturday. In 6.2 innings of work, he gave up no runs on two hits, walked five batters, and struck out seven in the Tigers’ 6-0 victory.


Lorenzen has a 2-1 record, a 2.70 ERA, a 1.08 WHIP, six walks, and 15 strikeouts in 16.2 innings across his previous three starts. In this game against the Royals, Lorenzen made his third start and fourth appearance overall.


In 12.2 innings pitched against them, he is 0-1 with a 4.26 ERA, a 1.263 WHIP, five walks, and 12 strikeouts.


With two career appearances, one start, and a 6.75 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, two walks, and five strikeouts over 6.2 innings at Kauffman Stadium, Lorenzen has no records there.

Detroit Tigers vs Kansas City Royals Predictions 7/20/2023


After dominating 7-2 after four innings and 11-6 after eight, Kansas City almost let Tuesday’s game slip away before securing the victory.


The Royals had a record of 28-68 as of Wednesday and were 21 games behind the Twins for first place in the AL Central. They were well behind the Astros by 24.5 games for the last American League wild card slot.


Dairon Blanco produced three runs and three RBI on Tuesday, while Maikel Garcia produced four runs and four RBI, Freddy Fermin scored two runs and two RBI, and Edward Olivares scored three runs and two RBI.


After pitching five innings and giving up five runs on six hits, two walks, and three strikeouts before turning the game over to the bullpen, Daniel Lynch IV (3-4) won the victory.


Although the Royals have not yet announced a starter, Zack Greinke is expected to be brought off the injured list to make his 19th start of the year.


Over 92.2 innings of work this season, he is 1-9 with a 5.44 ERA, a 1.295 WHIP, 13 walks, and 64 strikeouts. On July 4, Greinke made his most recent start against the Twins on the road but was unsuccessful.


He pitched 5.1 innings in a 9-3 Royals defeat, surrendering six runs on seven hits, no walks, and three strikeouts.


Greinke made three starts in his past three, going 0-2 with a record of 8.44 ERA, 1.88 WHIP, three walks, and six strikeouts in 16 innings pitched.


In this game against the Tigers, Greinke makes his 34th appearance and 31st career start. In 182.2 innings pitched against them, he is 13-8 with a 2.81 ERA, a 1.161 WHIP, 44 walks, and 135 strikeouts.


In 135 career appearances, 115 of which were starts, Greinke is 42-35 with one save, a 3.36 ERA, a 1.235 WHIP, 155 walks, and 600 strikeouts over 733.2 innings.


  • The total went UNDER in eight of Kansas City’s last 11 matches.
  • The Kansas City Royals are 3-10 SU in their last 13 matches.
  • The Kansas City Royals are 6-12 SU in their last 18 matches at home.

 Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals The MLB pick for this game is the Detroit Tigers. Although the Tigers are far closer to the AL Central’s top spot than the Royals are, both clubs have had their share of struggles this season.


Before the All-Star break, Lorenzen went through an evil spell, but since then, he has made back-to-back starts without giving up a run.


His past two outings resulted in victories for the Tigers, who hope to continue their recent success.


As Greinke returns from the IL with shoulder tendinitis, one has to question how much he can contribute to the Royals, who battled to find competent pitching for most of the season.


You have to give the Tigers the advantage here on the getaway day because Detroit has been playing better offensively recently and because of how Lorenzen threw. The Detroit Tigers will win by a predicted score of 7-2.
