Tigers 4, Royals 2

DETROIT — Jarrod Salta­la­macchia hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth to lead the Tigers. After Tyler Collins hit a leadoff single, Saltalamacchia won it with a drive off Joakim Soria that easily cleared the wall in rightfield. The catcher raised his right arm in celebration almost immediately as he trotted toward first base. Those were the only two RBIs of the day for Detroit. The Tigers scored their first two runs on a balk and a wild pitch.
