Hunter came out of the game after grounding out to shortstop in the eighth inning, but insists he won't miss any time. He left the clubhouse wearing a suit and black tennis shoes.
"I bought a pair of shoes and they might have been a little tight on the Achilles," Hunter said. "I was a little sore the whole game. Dress shoes, not my spikes -- I've worn the same spikes the last three months -- so it was definitely those shoes. I'll be fine tomorrow. It was just a little sore. I played through it the whole game. It happened this morning and I'm fine."
Hunter homered earlier in the afternoon -- his third of the four-game series -- and is hitting .349 with 17 runs, four doubles, two triples, six home runs and 18 RBIs in 20 July games.
The Tigers are already without No. 3 hitter and reigning American League MVP Miguel Cabrera, who has sat out the last three games with a sore left hip flexor. They'd prefer not to lose their No. 2 hitter, as well.
"I'm a gamer, man," Hunter said. "I come ready to play. You know that. I'll be in there tomorrow. Don't worry about it."
