July 19 9:19 AM PT10:19 AM MT11:19 AM CT12:19 PM ET12:19 ET16:19 GMT0:19 9:19 AM MST11:19 AM EST11:49 AM VEN20:19 UAE11:19 AM CT-Matthew Boyd improved to 3-5, allowing three runs on seven hits and one walk in 6.0 innings, as the Detroit Tigers defeated the Kansas City Royals 9-3 on Tuesday. Boyd struck out three, ending the game with a 5.58 ERA and 1.73 WHIP on the season.
Analysis: Boyd was recalled from Triple-A Toledo earlier in the day and ended up earning his first major league win since April 16. He had been 0-4 with a 6.37 ERA in his previous eight starts before being sent to the minors in early June. The fact that his winning return - and a quality start - came at Kauffman Stadium was particularly surprising since he was 0-2 with a 13.17 ERA in his first four career starts there.

Analysis: Boyd continues to get hit hard, as he's surrendered 37 hits in 18 1/3 innings - a .416 average - over his last four starts. The left-hander has now lost four of his past five outings and is winless in seven starts since recording his last victory on April 16. His grasp on a rotation spot appears to be rather shaky.

Analysis: After being rocked for five runs in 2 1/3 innings by the White Sox in his season debut, Boyd has yielded just one run over 12 innings to win back-to-back outings. He'll face a Minnesota team he dominated in his previous start when he next takes the mound Saturday at Target Field.

Analysis: Boyd recovered nicely after giving up five runs in 2 1/3 innings in his first start of the season against the Chicago White Sox last week. The Tigers picked him over the more experienced Anibal Sanchez for a spot in the rotation, and they'll hope this start was more indicative of what he'll provide going forward.
