Royals, Tigers meet while going in opposite directions

DETROIT -- The outlook for the Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers changed dramatically since they last met.

The clubs are heading in opposite directions as they open a three-game series at Comerica Park beginning Tuesday night.

When the Tigers took two of three from the Royals in late May, they had high hopes of staying in contention in the American League Central the rest of the way.
