Ian Kinsler hasn't done much at the plate for the Detroit Tigers since the All-Star break. But he came up big Tuesday night.

Kinsler hit a leadoff triple and scored the go-ahead run when Victor Martinez drew a bases-loaded walk in the 11th inning to lead the Tigers to a 8-6 win over the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field.

The win snapped a four-game losing streak on the road for the Tigers, who trail the AL Central-leading Kansas City Royals by two games. It marked just the sixth win in the last 15 games for the Tigers.

Tigers closer Joe Nathan gave up a run in the 11th and brought the potential game-winning run to the plate, but he struck out Sean Rodriguez to escape the jam and pick up his 26th save this season.

The Tigers scored three runs in the 11th, sparked by Kinsler's line drive off Rays reliever Grant Balfour. It bounced off the glove of Kevin Kiermaier and rolled into deep right field, allowing Kinsler to reach third uncontested.

Balfour then walked Torii Hunter and issued an intentional walk to Miguel Cabrera before walking Martinez on five pitches, allowing Kinsler to score.

Balfour was lifted in favor of Jeff Beliveau, who struck out Ezequiel Carrera before throwing a wild pitch that allowed Hunter to score from third.
