Player Notes
Justin Upton homered for the second consecutive day, helping to power the Tigers to an 8-3 victory over the Royals in Friday's series-opener at Comerica Park.

Advice: The victory, the club's fifth straight, keeps the Tigers in the driver's seat for a wild card berth in the American League. Teammates Victor Martinez and Cameron Maybin also left the yard in the ballgame. Upton has been on an absolute tear since receiving three days off to clear his head last month, hitting .292 (31-for-106) with 14 homers and 35 RBI over his last 30 games.

Justin Upton hit his 26th homer and walked twice Thursday as the Tigers topped the Twins 9-2 in the first game of a doubleheader.

Advice: Upton has eight homers in September after not hitting more than five in any previous month. He's still not hitting for average at all, but the Tigers still have to be thrilled about the production.

Justin Upton blasted a pair of home runs and drove home four as the Tigers dropped the opener of their three-game series against the Indians on Friday.

Advice: Upton got the Tigers on the board with a solo shot off of Corey Kluber in the second inning. He then launched a three-run homer in the sixth that pulled the Tigers to within two runs at 6-4, but that would be the extent of their offensive output. He finished the night 2-for-3 plus a walk and is now slashing .238/.299/.431 with 24 homers and 74 RBI on the season.
