Tigers-Royals Preview

(AP) -- The Detroit Tigers' stellar record in Kansas City is a major reason for their slim advantage over the Royals in the AL Central.

The Tigers will try to finish 9-1 at Kauffman Stadium this season and complete a three-game sweep in a crucial series Sunday while looking to add to their recent success against right-hander Jeremy Guthrie.

Detroit (86-68) increased its lead in the Central to 2 1/2 games by holding on for a 3-2 victory Saturday.
