Newcomers help Tigers stay atop AL Central

DETROIT (AP) David Price has been with the Detroit Tigers for about two months, Ian Kinsler for less than a year. It was those two newcomers who helped deliver the team's fourth straight AL Central championship on the regular season's final day. Price took a shutout into the eighth inning before giving way to the bullpen, and Kinsler contributed a homer and an RBI single to lift...

Tigers celebrate clinching AL Central (VIDEOS)

Behind Ian Kinsler’s solo home run which broke a scoreless tie and David Price’s seven shutout innings, the Tigers clinched the American League Central division Sunday. The win allowed them to avoid a game 163 Monday. A win there would have sent them to a one-game wildcard playoff game against the A’s. Instead, the Royals will play the A’s in the wildcard and the Tigers will...

Tigers win fourth straight division title

DETROIT -- Four in a row. With a 3-0 victory Sunday over the Minnesota Twins, the Tigers clinched their fourth-straight AL Central title. In a near-repeat of 1987, the last time they clinched the division at home, the title came with a homer -- Ian Kinsler playing the role of Larry Herndon -- and a spectacular pitching performance -- David Price in 2014, Frank Tanana in 1987.

Ian Kinsler's defensive skills making up for offensive woes

There's no hiding the fact that Ian Kinsler has struggled badly at the plate in the second half of the season. Kinsler knows it, Brad Ausmus knows it, and every one of his teammates knows it. As long as he keeps playing defense the way he has all season, they are OK with it. Kinsler reached the All-Star break hitting .303, and though he doesn't walk much, 26 doubles and 11 homers...

With just 13 games remaining, the Tigers odds of winning the division sit at 75 percent, and they are virtually assured of a playoff spot.

Kinsler Homer Helps Sweep Tribe Out of Detroit; Tigers 6, Indians 4

Did the Tribe Win Last Night? Nope. After getting out to a 3-1 lead in the top of the sixth inning, poor Indians defense and a two-run homer by Detroit’s Ian Kinsler gave the Tigers a 6-4 victory. It was the second straight night that Shaw allowed a go-ahead, home run to the Tigers. Detroit tacked on two more, necessary insurance runs in the bottom of the eighth in part when C...

Notes: Jose Iglesias for normal offseason activities

DETROIT -- Tigers fans never got to see the dream double-play combination of Ian Kinsler and Jose Iglesias this season. They should get their chance in 2015. After playing spectacular defense late last season and into the playoffs, Iglesias missed the entire 2014 season with shin splints. That meant he never got to play alongside Kinsler, who has played at a Gold-Glove level at second...

Game 2014.146: Royals at Tigers

That last was a mighty fine game. Many good plays, bang-bang plays, on both sides, and fortunately the errors fell KC’s way once again. We can tell what Ian Kinsler eats for breakfast (anyone?), but can anyone leave his feet and then make a throw like he does? Rajai Davis power was the difference in the game, and we know he didn’t really get picked off 1B, either. J.D. Martinez...

Tigers get bonus in Kinsler's defense

DETROIT -- When the Tigers traded Prince Fielder last winter, they knew they were getting a strong offensive player in Ian Kinsler. They didn't realize they were also getting a Gold Glove-caliber second baseman. Kinsler has played spectacular defense all season -- something that goes against the reputation he had in Texas.

The Subtlety of Ian Kinsler and Quality Baserunning

The article begins with an anecdote, like so many articles usually do. Let’s watch something that ultimately didn’t matter, from Sunday’s marathon contest between the Tigers and the Blue Jays.
