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.
Cabrera hit a hard driven ball into center field. Bourn was trying to make a play running all the way back to the warning track. The fly ball bounced off his glove and found its way in the first row of seats for Cabrera’s 13th home run of the season.
On that play Miguel said, “Lucky home run. I take it, especially with a win. Long game.”
This was a crazy game that saw ace pitchers Justin Verlander and Ubaldo Jimenez have an early exit in the game, a 62-minute rain delay in the middle of the fifth inning, and the unique home run.
The game lasted three hours and 33 minutes. The Tigers won the game 11-7 and it will be a game that Cabrera won’t forget and Bourn will try to forget. Luckly for Bourn’s sake it is not like what happened to Jose Canseco’s head home run assist.

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.

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...
