Tigers second baseman and leadoff hitter Ian Kinsler turned a 3-1 deficit into a 4-3 lead with one swing of the bat Thursday against Indians right-hander Danny Salazar.

The three-run homer in the fifth inning put his team up to stay and allowed Justin Verlander to earn the victory. He added an RBI single in the sixth.

Kinsler has been consistent and productive since the opening bell. He has seven multi-hit games and boasts a slugging percentage of .519.

News
Tigers reliever Al Alburquerque has opened the season without issuing a walk in seven straight appearances, which is the longest stretch of his career without issuing a walk.

"He's throwing strikes. He's probably been our most consistent guy out of the 'pen right now," manager Brad Ausmus said, per MLB.com. "For a lot of the statistics over 11 games, I'm not ready to jump on any bandwagon. It's just too early. I hope he continues to throw the way he's throwing, and I hope he doesn't walk a guy all season. I hope he extends his streak, but 11 games in, jumping on any statistical bandwagon can be a little bit misguided. It's not really enough of a sample."

Tigers pitcher Anibal Sanchez allowed three runs (two earned) on two hits and four walks in five innings while striking out eight in his team's 3-2 loss to the Indians Wednesday.

Sanchez (0-1) needed 104 pitches to complete five innings so he wasn't brought back out for the sixth. It was his second straight start throwing at least 100 pitches while only lasting five innings. He has posted a 3.21 ERA and 17:8 K:BB ratio in just 14 innings over three starts. Sanchez is in line to take on the White Sox at home Monday.

Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander showed some command issues and issued for walks on Thursday. However, he still managed to escape with his second win of the season in a 7-5 victory over Cleveland.

Making his fourth start of the season, Verlander (2-1) permitted a run-scoring single to David Murphy in the fourth and a two-run single to Michael Brantley in the following frame. He surrendered three unearned runs on six hits and four walks while striking out seven over five innings. He tossed 113 pitches, 74 of which came for strikes.

Verlander has struck out at least seven in each of his last two starts. He owns a 2.08 ERA and 1.35 WHIP along with 20:10 K:BB ratio over 26 innings. He'll make his next start Tuesday at home against the White Sox.
