DETROIT (AP) - Ian Kinsler homered and drove in the winning run with a single in the 10th inning to lift the Detroit Tigers over the Kansas City Royals 2-1 on Wednesday.

Max Scherzer pitched eight scoreless innings for the Tigers, but Joe Nathan blew his first save chance since signing with Detroit in the offseason.

Kinsler, acquired from Texas for Prince Fielder in a November blockbuster trade, homered in the fourth and won the game with a line drive to left-center field off Tim Collins (0-1).

Detroit benefited from two replay overturns at first base. The second enabled Al Alburquerque (1-0) to get out of the top of the 10th.
