 DETROIT (AP) -- Ian Kinsler homered twice, including a go-ahead two-run shot in the eighth inning, and the Detroit Tigers beat the Seattle Mariners 5-4 Monday night. Kinsler, who came in with three homer this season, hit one off Seattle starter J.A. Happ in the first, and then drove a fastball from Mark Lowe over the Tigers' bullpen with two out in the eighth. It was his first multi-homer game since Sept. 7, 2011. Lowe (0-1) hadn't allowed an earned run in his last 12 outings, dating back to June 14, but Jose Iglesias doubled with one out, took third on a grounder and scored on Kinsler's homer. Al Alburquerque (1-0) picked up his first decision in 60 outings, pitching a scoreless eighth inning. Joakim Soria got the last three outs for his 21st save.
