C Alex Avila hit two home runs worth three runs Sunday to personally account for Detroit's 3-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals. "You might try for a home run in a certain spot every now and then, on a certain pitch," Avila said. "I got one. It was a 1-1 count. I was looking for something up and I thought if I get it, I might try to hit very hard. I hit it very hard." He said after he came off the disabled list for the first of two times this season, he changed his approach a little. "I decided to play every game as hard as I can," Avila said.
