Collins went 3-for-4 with a double, two homers and four RBI in Wednesday's win over the Orioles.

This massive game came pretty much out of nowhere, as Collins had just a .216/.283/.309 line with two homers coming into Wednesday. Such are the generously distributed benefits of hitters who get to face Baltimore's ultra-hittable Ubaldo Jimenez, although Collins had by far the best day of any Tiger. This could win him a bit more playing time, but it's not evident to this point that Collins is well equipped to take advantage of that.
