Carlos Guillen powers Tigers over Royals

Detroit News
Searching as they have to find another big bat for their lineup, the Tigers realize they have it.

Carlos Guillen is back from a long hiatus and knocking in runs, four of them Saturday night, as the Tigers thumped the Kansas City Royals, 10-3, at Comerica Park.

Guillen missed most of the spring and early summer because of a shoulder problem that still prevents him from batting right-handed, not that it seemed to slow him down Saturday in front of a typically festive crowd of 37,376.

He had a two-run home run in the fifth that turned a 4-2 Tigers lead into a 6-2 contest; he singled in the first Tigers run in their half of the first after the Royals had taken a 2-0 lead off starter Edwin Jackson; and he drove home Detroit's seventh run in the sixth on a line single to left-center.
