Tigers host struggling Royals for day-night doubleheader

The Kansas City Royals return to Detroit for the second time this month. Much of the preseason optimism they brought to that first series has already faded away.

The Royals carry an eight-game losing streak to Comerica Park and have two chances to break it Friday. They play a day-night doubleheader to open a four-game series. The opener is a makeup of an April 4 postponement.

As the Royals' 3-13 record would suggest, they have plenty of issues to resolve. They have a .237 team batting average and only one player is hitting above .271. Opponents have hit nearly twice as many homers (21-11).
