Monday’s lineups: Tigers at Royals

The Tigers are sticking with the lineup they used against Bruce Chen last week in Detroit. They produced 10 hits off him that night, but just two runs over 6 2/3 innings. Delmon Young and Gerald Laird had two hits each, while Avisail Garcia got a line-drive single.

The Royals will send out four left-handed batters and a switch-hitter against Rick Porcello. Eric Hosmer is out, and Jarrod Dyson is in. Billy Butler gets the start at first base.
