The home run was only the eighth of Iglesias' career, and it was the first time Iglesias has gone deep to the opposite field. This season, Iglesias has two home runs -- coming against Sale and Nationals ace Max Scherzer.
Iglesias smiled at that notion, but the soft-spoken shortstop kept his thoughts on homering against two of baseball's best short and sweet.
"I don't know. I just try to compete every at-bat," Iglesias said. "Every at-bat is the same. Every at-bat matters. I take every at-bat like it's my last one."
What Iglesias might lack in boisterousness, he makes up with energy on the field. The home run extended Iglesias' hitting streak to 13 games, the longest by a Tigers player this season and the longest active streak in the Majors. It wasn't Iglesias' only highlight.
