Last-place Royals open set against division-champ Guardians

The American League Central champion Cleveland Guardians will open their final 2022 series against the division rival Kansas City Royals when the clubs begin a three-game set on Friday night.

The visiting Royals (63-93) will be looking to rebound from a stinging 10-3 defeat in Detroit on Thursday, a result that allowed the Tigers to complete a three-game home sweep.

Down 10-0 after seven innings, Kansas City finally got a two-run double from pinch hitter Ryan O'Hearn and an RBI double from Nate Eaton, but the Royals fell a half-game behind Detroit (63-92) into last in the division.
