Somehow the Tigers keep losing despite having some of the hottest players in the division. Kinsler hit the low point of his season with a .258 average and awful .673 OPS on July 1, but since then, the second baseman has slowly worked his numbers back to normalcy.

Behind a .366 July and then a .385 August, Kinsler is batting .305 this season with eight home runs, 82 runs, 59 RBI, eight stolen bases and a .800 OPS.

Here are Kinsler’s full August numbers: .385/.414/.626, three homers, 21 runs and 13 RBI.
