KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Brady Singer finished his rookie season with a stellar performance, Alex Gordon wrapped up his long Royals career and Kansas City ended its season with a 3-1 win over the Detroit Tigers.
The last-place Tigers left the field not knowing if they were done for the year.
There was a chance they would need to play a doubleheader at home against St. Louis on Monday if the playoff-contending Cardinals needed to make up the games for a postseason spot.
Adalberto Mondesi and Ryan McBroom homered for the Royals, who finished just above the Tigers in the AL Central in their first season under manager Mike Matheny.
