Matt Manning searching for strike zone as Tigers host Royals

Right-hander Matt Manning will try to exert better control on Wednesday when the host Detroit Tigers face the Kansas City Royals in the middle game of a three-game series.

Manning tied his career high by issuing five walks at Baltimore last Wednesday. He walked only 14 batters in his 11 other starts this season.

"Overall, my fastball command wasn't there," Manning said. "I was falling behind -- a lot of 2-1 counts -- and I was trying to get back in. I walked a few early and I didn't want to walk any more. Just kind of put too much pressure on myself, and one thing led to another."
