Ian Kinsler hit a three-run homer with two outs in the ninth inning to rally the visiting Detroit Tigers past the Houston Astros, 4-3, on Saturday after Max Scherzer struck out a season-high 13 batters. Jason Castro's solo homer in the 11th inning lifted the Houston Astros to a 4-3 win over Detroit on Friday night to snap the Tigers' seven-game winning streak.
