DETROIT (AP) - Matt Boyd pitched seven strong innings in his Tigers debut and Anthony Gose and Ian Kinsler hit key triples as the Detroit Tigers beat the Kansas City Royals 2-1 on Wednesday night.

Acquired last week from Toronto in the David Price trade, Boyd (1-2) only allowed one run on seven hits and didn't walk a batter in a career-long seven innings. He received a standing ovation when he exited.

The Tigers broke a scoreless tie in the third when Gose's two-out triple over the head of Lorenzo Cain brought home Tyler Collins.

Johnny Cueto (7-7) couldn't pick up his first win for Kansas City despite only allowing two runs on five hits in seven innings. Cueto walked two and struck out two.
