Player Notes
Ian Kinsler went 3-for-4 with a homer and two RBI to pace the Tigers offense on Sunday.

Advice: Kinsler was a liability offensively during the second half, but he came through today. He ended up with four homers in his final 14 games, which is more than he had the previous 2 1/2 months combined. Despite his struggles getting on base, he'll be the Tigers' leadoff man in the ALDS.

Ian Kinsler went 2-for-3 with two RBI while reaching base four times in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

Advice: Kinsler doubled in a run in the seventh and singled in a run in the eighth while also drawing a pair of walks. It's been a poor second half for the second baseman, but he now has two-straight multi-hit games and has driven in 89 runs for the season while spending almost all of the year hitting first or second.
