Veterans open on mound in Royals-Tigers series

A couple veteran pitchers who are finishing strong after a rough season will square off Friday night in Detroit.

Kansas City's Ian Kennedy and Detroit's Francisco Liriano have a combined 7-18 record with ERAs above 4.50. Yet both have delivered a couple quality starts this month.

Kennedy (2-8, 4.73 ERA) faced Minnesota in back-to-back starts after returning from a left oblique strain that put him out of commission for nearly two months. He pitched six innings and limited the Twins to one earned run in each of those outings.
