Cueto struggles again as Royals fall to Tigers 6-5

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) When the Kansas City Royals acquired Johnny Cueto in a July 26 trade with Cincinnati, they thought they were getting a staff ace.

Cueto has looked like anything but in his recent starts.

The right-hander yielded six hits and three runs in the first two innings as the Royals lost 6-5 to the last-place Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night.
