The Detroit Tigers had a walkoff win. Then they didn't. Then they did again. Ian Kinsler made sure he would be the Tigers' winning run, hitting a walkoff homer off of Royals reliever Miguel Almonte in the bottom of the 11th inning.

For the second night in a row, the Tigers celebrated at home plate.
