DETROIT (AP) - Ian Kinsler has left Detroit’s game against Texas on Saturday night with left hamstring tightness.

Kinsler was taken out in the top of the fifth inning with the Tigers ahead 9-2, and the team described his removal as precautionary. It’s the same hamstring that caused the Detroit second baseman to miss a week earlier this month .

Kinsler singled twice and scored twice before coming out of the game. The Tigers got slugger Miguel Cabrera back from an injury Saturday after he had missed three games with a strained oblique.
