Ian Kinsler delivers knockout punch with 10 pitch at-bat

Ian Kinsler delivers knockout punch with 10 pitch at-bat

Miguel Cabrera's two-run home run may have been the exclamation point, but Kinsler set the stage with a hard-fought battle the at-bat prior. When Miguel Cabrera stepped to the plate in the bottom of the third inning last night, Chicago White Sox starter Charlie Leesman already looked defeated. This is not a rare occurrence when pitchers are forced to face Cabrera with men on base, but Leesman's despair was not just because the best hitter on the planet was stepping to the plate. Ian Kinsler had just capped off a 10-pitch at-bat with a double down the third base line, breaking a 1-1...

GIF: Ian Kinsler scores on the weirdest play ever

If someone could tell me how to describe this, that would be great. Ian Kinsler displayed some heads-up baserunning today when he scored on a play that featured not one, not two, but three errors from the Angels' defense. Catcher Hank Conger threw the ball into center field when trying to catch Kinsler stealing despite the fact that Kinsler was already safe when Miguel Cabrera walked, so Kinsler ran to third while Mike Trout picked up the ball, then Trout lobbed the ball back in to the infield and Kinsler decided to run home, but Santiago's throw home was wild -- big surprise there, huh? --...

Angels miscues help Tigers to a 2-1 victory

KEY MOMENT: The Angels made three errors — on one first-inning play — to give Detroit a run. Ian Kinsler took off from first base on a full-count pitch that Miguel Cabrera took for ball four. Catcher Hank Conger, thinking it was strike three, tried to gun down Kinsler, but his throw sailed into center field, allowing Kinsler to take third base. Center fielder Mike Trout's throw went over second and bounced behind the mound for error No. 2, allowing Kinsler to score. Pitcher Hector Santiago retrieved Trout's throw and fired wildly past the plate as Kinsler scored, Cabrera taking second on...

Ian Kinsler did the impossible Sunday. He scored from first on a walk. How is that possible? Watch the replay to find out. DETROIT -- Ian Kinsler did the impossible Sunday. He scored from first on a walk. Trailing the Los Angeles Angels 1-0 in the first inning, Kinsler took off for second base on Hector Santiago's full-count pitch to Miguel Cabrera with one out. Angels catcher Hank Conger came up throwing to second, despite Cabrera drawing a walk, and his throw sailed wide of shortstop Erick Aybar, allowing Kinsler to move to third. As Kinsler rounded...

Ian Kinsler off to a hot start with the Tigers

Ian Kinsler off to a hot start with the Tigers

Ian Kinsler is living proof that the Detroit Tigers won the trade. DETROIT--The Detroit Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler is hot. Baseballs cannot get enough of him and have been falling all over themselves just to let him get a piece of them. Oddly enough, it is usually the other way around. Just ask Prince Fielder, who is currently experiencing the opposing end of this phenomenon with the Texas Rangers. Kinsler is on a hot streak that has not let up since he was traded by the Rangers to the Tigers. He has reached base safely in eight of his last nine games. In 38 at-bats he has recorded...

Ian Kinsler a 'baseball rat' who has provided offensive spark in short time with Detroit Tigers

At this point, its pointless to compare the numbers for Kinsler and Prince Fielder, who swapped places with the Detroit Tigers and the Texas Rangers in the offseason. Lets do it anyway. DETROIT -- Ian Kinsler is not going to hit .327 for the full season. He won't finish the year with an .871 OPS. But so far, he has provided a nice spark on the bases and some power in the batter's box for the Detroit Tigers. Kinsler hit a three-run home run, knocked in four runs and stole a base Thursday afternoon to lead the Tigers to a 7-5 victory over the Cleveland Indians. At...

Tigers 7, Indians 5: Outhit, but not outscored - Ian Kinsler's 4 RBI lead victory

Ian Kinsler's big game at the plate was capped off by a three run home run in the fifth, pushing the Tigers to a come-from-behind win. Despite three errors and being outhit, the Detroit Tigers rode the bat of Ian Kinsler to a sloppy come-from-behind 7-5 victory over the Cleveland Indians. The win gave the Tigers a split over their division rivals in a weather shortened series. Once again, the Tigers' starting pitching was extremely inefficient. Justin Verlander (2-1) was the third consecutive rotation member who couldn't pitch past the fifth thanks to an elevated pitch count. The Tigers'...
