(DETROIT) - For a team struggling to get above .500, the Detroit Tigers looked like a pennant contender on Friday night. The Tigers got 13 hits, including seven for extra bases, and made several key defensive plays in a 13-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. Nicholas Castellanos drove in four runs and Justin Upton drove in three, while Kinsler and Alex Avila homered. Daniel Norris (4-4) got the win, giving up three runs on eight hits and a walk in six-plus innings. Erasmo Ramirez (3-2) matched a career worst by allowing 10 runs on nine hits and two walks in 4 2/3 innings. Kinsler hit the 43rd lead-off homer off his career in the first. That broke a tie with Curtis Granderson for sixth on the career list and moved him one behind Brady Anderson. Tampa Bay tied the game in the third. Peter Bourjos tripled with one out and Steven Souza Jr. followed with a grounder to third. Castellanos threw wildly to the plate, allowing Souza to take second. The Rays took a 2-1 lead in the fourth on Daniel Robertson's RBI single. The Tigers took over the game at that point, scoring five runs in each of the next two innings to take an 11-2 lead. Jose Iglesias received a standing ovation after two spectacular defensive plays in the fifth. He charged a slow roller and threw out Bourjos, then sprinted straight back into left-centerfield to make an over-the-shoulder catch on Souza's pop up. The cheers continued when Upton reached over the left-field fence to rob the next hitter, Corey Dickerson, of a home run.
