Tigers Win at Kansas City, 7-6
Both teams had their chances, but the Detroit Tigers eventually prevailed at Kauffman Stadium.

Detroit beat Kansas City at Kauffman Stadium, escaping with a 7-6 win. The win in large part was due to center fielder Jesús Hernández, who earned player of the game honors. He went 1-3 with a home run and a walk, while adding 2 RBI and scoring once. The Tigers bumped their record to 84-74 with this latest triumph.

The Tigers got a big at-bat from catcher Chris Okey. For the game, Okey went 1 for 5 with a home run. He drove in 3 runs and scored once. In the top of the seventh, with runners on 1st and 2nd, he stroked a 3-run home run. His 12th home run of the season gave Detroit a 7-5 lead.

"It was offense that won us the game," said winning manager .
