Detroit Tigers players will look to continue the team’s winning ways when they travel to Kansas City on Friday to take on the Royals. Anibal Sanchez will take the mound for the Tigers opposite Danny Duffy.

However, despite the strong numbers, some Tigers batters have found success against the 27-year-old.

Victor Martinez is a career .323 hitter in 33 plate appearances versus Duffy, while Ian Kinsler has a pair of home runs. Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Duffy have squared off four times. The Detroit catchers is two-for-three with a walk and two home runs.

Facing Duffy and the Royals is veteran starter Anibal Sanchez. The former Marlin struggled in the first half, but has bounced back in the second half.
