Royals-Tigers Preview

(AP) -- Johnny Cueto was solid and workmanlike in his Royals debut against baseball's best offense.

He could be in line for a more dominant outing Wednesday night against the Detroit Tigers, who have been bottled up in recent meetings with Kansas City.

Cueto, one of the most highly sought-after players at last week's trade deadline, faced a tough assignment in his first start for his new club. He gave up three runs over six innings of Kansas City's 7-6 loss Friday at Toronto, which averages a major league-best 5.3 runs. He exited with a 5-3 lead.
