Detroit Tigers left-hander Matthew Boyd pitched well in a 6-4 win over the Royals on Thursday. Boyd allowed three runs in 6 1/3 innings of work while striking out six.
Boyd improved his record to 8-10 with the win. It was also encouraging to see him not allow a home run after he has struggled in that department this season. Boyd has a 4.57 ERA and 225 strikeouts in 171 1/3 innings.
