The Tigers got to Vargas for three runs on five hits. Detroit tacked on a run in the second, another in the fourth and then broke things open with a five-run fifth. Detroit had 15 hits by that point.
Another former Mizzou takes aim at KC. RHP Max Scherzer (16-5) tries to beat Kansas City for the second time in less than two weeks.
