(AP) — The Kansas City Royals have their longest winning streak in nearly two years. They’ll have to get past one of baseball’s best pitchers to extend it further.

Unbeaten Max Scherzer will take the mound for the Detroit Tigers in Kansas City on Tuesday night, looking to derail the Royals’ run.

Kansas City (29-32) won Monday’s series opener 3-2 on the strength of a two-run triple by Salvador Perez. The Royals’ run of six consecutive victories is their longest since they won seven in a row Sept. 10-17, 2011.

With a 7-2 record in June, they are one shy of matching their win total from all of last month. Kansas City went 8-20 in May.
