Detroit Tigers Beat Chicago White Sox On Cabrera Homer

The Tigers had been a streaky team so far this season.  Win 4 or 5.  Lose 4 or 5.  Repeat.  Justin Verlander got some help from the big guy, Miguel Cabrera, who hit a two-run homer with two outs in the 9th to give his team the lead.  Tigers win 4-2. 

Verlander pitched the first 8 and only gave up two runs on a homer by Chicago 2nd baseman Gordon Beckham.  Cabrera’s blast came after Austin Jackson led off the 9th inning with a triple.  After a pop-up and a strikeout, it looked like Chicago would get out of the inning by pitching around Cabrera.  Instead, Jesse Crain left a breaking ball over the plate which Miguel deposited in the right field seats to give the Tigers the lead.  Verlander picked up his 6th win of the season while Jose Valverde racked up his 15th save in 15 opportunities.  The win also brings the Tigers to within 3 1/2 games of first place Cleveland, who lost to Texas (the Tigers’ next opponent) 4-0. 

The Tigers and White Sox wrap up their three game series in Chicago tomorrow afternoon.  Brad Penny starts on the mound for Detroit, first pitch at 2:10 pm.
