Description: Athletics center fielder Brett Burns went 2-for-5 with a RBI and run in the, 5-3, victory over the Tigers on Tuesday.
Insight: Burns singled in the Athletics' first run of the night in the seventh. He then scored on a grand slam in the same frame as Oakland took the, 5-3, lead. Burns is hitting .330, so he is a great option if owners need batting average, but he has very little power. He has seven extra-base hits and four RBI in 115 at-bats.
