The Tigers take the second of a four game series.

After both the Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers had their pitchers put up nights to remember, the Tigers second baseman Ramon Santiago put up the winning walk-off solo home run to put the game away in the win column for Detroit. In the end, the Tigers won 2-1.

The Tigers Doug Fister pitched seven strong innings allowing only one run, but he was outdone by Jeff Francis of the Royals who threw six shutout innings. However, Greg Holland allowed one run to tie the game and the game went to one extra frame. There was little offense save for Santiago's homer, as both teams combined 11 hits. However, it was enough for Fister and the Tigers' staff to walk away with their 74th win.

The four game series continues tomorrow afternoon at 1:05 ET/12:05 CT. Felipe Paulino takes the mound for the Royals while Rick Porcello starts for the Tigers.
