Ordonez led off the second by sending a low pitch over the right-field wall. His second homer went to left, chasing Dallas Braden and giving Detroit an 8-2 lead.
Kaline did it in 1955 against Kansas City.
San Francisco's Bengie Molina was the only other player to do it this season, on May 7 against the New York Mets, and only Tampa Bay's Julio Lugo did it last year, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
The last player to hit two home runs against the same pitcher in one inning was Montreal's Juan Rivera against Arnie Munoz of the Chicago White Sox on June 19, 2004, according to Elias.
