Player Notes
Ian Kinsler plated the Tigers' lone run as they were obliterated by the Blue Jays in Toronto on Saturday.

Advice: His run-scoring fielder's choice in the third inning was the extent of their offensive output against Drew Hutchison and company. He finished the afternoon 1-for-3 and is now hitting .307/.358/.449 with 61 RBI in what has been a terrific season for the second baseman.

Ian Kinsler went 3-for-3 with two walks and two runs scored, but the Tigers were defeated by the Reds on Monday.

Advice: Kinsler singled and scored in the first and fourth innings, but the Tigers weren't able to keep up with the Reds' offense. The second baseman is on a seven-game hitting streak and holds an .805 OPS, the highest his OPS has been at any point this season after April 15 (Tigers' game number nine). He has a league-leading total of 153 hits and has scored 83 runs while knocking in 59.

Mon, Aug 24 Rotoworld
Ian Kinsler went 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run home run in Saturday's loss to the Rangers.

Advice: Kinsler waited until late to do his damage. His three-run homer in the ninth inning cut the Ranger lead to 5-3, but no more runs would score in the frame. The veteran infielder is now working on a five-game hitting streak in which he's amassed 11 hits over 23 at-bats, with three doubles, a triple and two home runs over that small stretch. It's helped to boost his overall season-slash to .305/.356/.444. In addition to those solid numbers, he's also hit eight homers and driven in 59 runs. He's an easy player to overlook, but the numbers he's posting right now are shaping up to be among the best of his career.
