DETROIT, Michigan —
The Detroit Tigers won their 3rd game in a row in come back fashion as they defeated the Minnesota Twins 7-6 tonight at Comerica Park.
Miguel Cabrera continued his phenomenal home run streak by hitting one out in the 1st inning off Scott Diamond. Miggy has 6 home runs over the past 4 games. He finished 2 for 3 with 3 RBI on the evening. After falling behind 5-2, Detroit would rally back with 1 in the 5th, 3 runs in the 7th, and 1 more in the 8th to pull ahead 7-6. That would be the final tonight.
Rick Porcello was roughed up by Minnesota, allowing 10 hits and 5 runs over 5 innings of work. However, the bullpen came in and got the job done in the later innings to preserve the victory.

BEST OF MAXIM

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...

Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera almost lost a battle with a screaming foul ball off the bat of teammate Matt Tuiasosopo. Cabrera laughed it off playfully but there is no doubt Manager Jim Leyland would have had some choice words for “Big Matt” had he injured the franchise player.

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.

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.

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...
