Miguel Cabrera is surging for the Detroit Tigers while Joe Mauer is enduring a very rare drought without a hit for the Minnesota Twins.

The red-hot Cabrera brings a 12-game hitting streak into this contest. The reigning AL MVP is hitting .420 with 15 RBIs during this run after he went 2 for 4 with a three-run homer on a 3-0 count in Sunday's 8-3 victory over Atlanta, as Detroit (13-10) completed a three-game sweep.

That's the only series so far between thes...
