*Franmil Reyes hit 2 homers to fuel the offense. It was his 9th multi-homer game in career. He started the game with a 409-foot homer to the left field bleachers in the 1st inning. His second homer came in the 3rd inning, a 446-foot mammoth homer to straightaway centerfield where it went past Heritage Park.

*Reyes has always done well against Detroit. In 18 career games, he is hitting .328 with 9 homers, 20 RBI. He joins 3 other American League sluggers as Tigers killers: KC’s Jorge Soler has 11 homers, White Sox’ Eloy Jimenez with 10, Nelson Cruz of Minnesota and Reyes with 9 each. All of these sluggers have something in common. All play for Central Division teams and are very familiar with Detroit, playing them 18-19 times a year.
