Daniel Lynch, Royals aim to bounce back against Tigers

Daniel Lynch's second career start turned into a debacle. The Kansas City Royals right-hander couldn't get out of the first inning against the Chicago White Sox on Saturday, surrendering eight runs before he was pulled.

The Royals are hopeful Lynch (0-1, 18.56 ERA) will bounce back in the finale of a three-game series against the Tigers in Detroit on Thursday afternoon.

The 24-year-old is considered the organization's top pitching prospect, and the Royals are eager to see how he handles adversity.
