Miguel Cabrera led off the ninth with a homer to right off Aaron Crow to win it. In a back-and-forth affair Cabrera doubled in the go-ahead run in the fourth. Salvador Perez tied the score with a bases-empty homer in the seventh off left-handed reliever Drew Smyly. Prince Fielder put the Tigers back in front in the seventh with a bases-empty homer. Emilio Bonifacio led off the eighth with a single stole second and scored the tying run on Chris Getz’s single. But the Royals left the bases loaded in the eighth and the potential go-ahead run in scoring position in the ninth. KC went 4-for-20 with runners in scoring position. Infante exits: Tigers second baseman Omar Infante left the game after six innings. The club said that he exited because of lower back stiffness. It listed his status as day-to-day. Say what? In each of the first four innings the Royals had at least three at-bats against Doug Fister with runners in scoring position. After four innings they were 3-for-13 with runners in scoring position and had three runs. One beats two: Fielder (double) and Victor Martinez (single) knocked in two-out runs in the Tigers first. The Tigers scored one more run in that inning than in the entire doubleheader loss Friday. Kelly hits second: Don Kelly hit second as he took over for the resting Torii Hunter in right. Kelly’s first-inning single made him 5-for-8 lifetime off Wade Davis. Hunter is 3-for-13 off Davis. Iglesias’ RBI: One reason that manager Jim Leyland might have called for Jose Iglesias to squeeze in the second inning is that Iglesias had one RBI in his last 13 games. Iglesias got the squeeze bunt down to drive in the runner from third.
