Ian Kinsler hit a three run home run with two outs in the second inning to give the Tigers a 4-0 lead.

Verlander took a no-hitter into the sixth inning when current national league batting champion Dee Gordon hit a one-out double to right field.

By the time the inning was over the score was 5 to 3 Tigers.

The Marlins managed to tie the game in the ninth.

Ian Kinsler hit a run-scoring single in the 11th inning and Shane Green closed the Marlins out in their half of the inning to seal the 8  to 7 win.

Kinsler had 4 RBIs on the night.
