CLEVELAND (AP) -- Justin Verlander overcame a rocky start and rain delay to get his fifth win and Miguel Cabrera hit another homer as the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 11-7 on Wednesday night, sweeping the two-game series between the AL Central's top teams.
Verlander (5-4) was two outs from qualifying for a victory, when the game was stopped with the Tigers leading 9-5 in the fifth. The right-hander came back after the weather break and finished the inning to get the win, ending a run of five straight victories by the Indians over former Cy Young winners.
The game was delayed 62 minutes by rain in the fifth and another 48 minutes in the eighth.
Victor Martinez hit two sacrifice flies off Ubaldo Jimenez (3-3) as the Tigers, who led 9-2 in the fifth, held on to move within one-half game of the first-place Indians.
After the second rain delay, Cabrera connected for a two-run homer off reliever Rich Hill.
It was the slugger's fifth homer in three games and 13th ...
BEST OF MAXIM
Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera is the best hitter on the planet, and quite possibly the best hitter of our generation. When he’s not hitting home runs, it appears he is scoping out the attractive girls in the stands. On Tuesday night during the Tigers game against the Cleveland Indians he got ready to toss a foul ball to a fan in the stands. A tattooed girl was...

Miguel Cabrera is in search of another Triple Crown with the Detroit Tigers this year, and he certainly doesn’t need any help from his opponents along the way. Cabrera has hit five home runs in his last three games and has 13 on the season. Had it not been for a little assistance from Cleveland Indians center fielder Michael Bourn, his total...
How red hot is Miguel Cabrera right now? Well, he turned a fly ball to the warning track Wednesday night into his fifth homer in three games, thanks to a huge assist from Cleveland’s Michael Bourn.
With the Tigers up 9-7 in the eighth inning, Cabrera smacked a high drive to deep right-center field. Bourn, though, raced back to the wall and had room to reach up and make the grab...

Last night Miguel Cabrera got an assist from Cleveland Indians center fielder Michael Bourn. Cabrera really doesn’t need the help, but he will gladly take it when it comes to hitting a home run. After last year’s Triple Crown season Cabrera is off to an even better start this year. It is amazing to see the numbers he is putting up.

The Detroit Tigers hung on in the late innings to defeat the Cleveland Indians 11-7 in a rain-filled game tonight at Progressive Field. Detroit jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the 1st inning and never relinquished the lead, as Ubaldo Jimenez served up doubles to 4 different Tiger batters in just 4 innings of work. Every...
Detroit Tigers superstar Miguel Cabrera is on pace for perhaps a second Triple Crown. That impresses Barry Bonds, but Bonds still believes he's far better.
Former outfielder and slugger Barry Bonds typically tries to stay away from the media as he has made it clear over the years that he does not enjoy talking to them. So when Bonds actually does decide to speak, it usually is something worth noting or at least being discussed. Bonds did a phone interview [...]
With pitchers like Justin Verlander, Anibal Sanchez and Doug Fister, Detroit's rotation isn't prone to extended slumps.
If one does get going, there's always Max Scherzer to shut it down.
Coming off a 3-1 series loss to Texas where his fellow starters struggled, Scherzer dominated first-place Cleveland on Tuesday night. After allowing a first-inning run, Scherzer retired...

Just when we thought it was okay to give the 2013 MVP to the last year’s Triple Crown and MVP winner, Miguel Cabrera guess who decides to crash the party? Mike Trout, the sophomore sensation who finished second in the AL MVP vote last year. Trout had an answer to Cabrera’s recent tear by hitting for the cycle on Tuesday night against the Seattle Mariners...
With no games until this evening, it's as good a time as any to honor the most locked-in players in Baseball.About 20 years ago, a scout told me the best way to quickly see which players are on top of their game is to look at past 14-days stats, and our Fortnight Awards stubbornly celebrate the debatable, old-school mentality.I tend to believe that streakiness is a result of...
