Here's how Miguel Cabrera got out of his early-season slump

Cabrera's rough start to the season stemmed from the way he was being pitched and when he chose to swing. There will come a time in Miguel Cabrera’s career when the Detroit Tigers’ slugger will no longer be one of the game’s elite hitters. While this is unlikely to come anytime soon, skeptics will jump on any opportunity to pounce on any moment of decline. So when things looked grim for Cabrera 17 games into the season, trigger-happy pessimists announced that this could be the beginning of the end. Cabrera promptly responded the next evening by hitting two home runs against the...

Miguel Cabrera's scorching hot at the plate again, and others are taking notice

Miguel Cabrera's scorching hot at the plate again, and others are taking notice

Cabrera has five home runs in the last four games, including two on Monday in the Tigers 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. DETROIT -- Emerging from a postgame workout Monday night, there stood a group of reporters waiting on Miguel Cabrera. So, too, was a special present: the second-base bag from the field at Comerica Park to commemorate his 500th career double. "Just put it back there," said Cabrera, pointing to his stall inside the Detroit Tigers' clubhouse. The Tigers won again Monday night, edging the Philadelphia Phillies 5-4, and they have Cabrera to...

Giants’ Pence hobbles off bench, beats Padres with misplayed hit sin ninth

Giants’ Pence hobbles off bench, beats Padres with misplayed hit sin ninth With Brandon Belt on first base and two outs in the ninth inning of a scoreless game, Hunter Pence dragged his achy hamstring to home plate, hit a high fly to right and jogged to first as everyone inside the yard starting thinking "10th inning." Johnny Cueto pitched his second consecutive complete game, both against the Padres, and his third against San Diego overall. The Giants improved to 7-0 against the Padres this season and won for the 11th time in 12 games, their only loss against reigning Cy Young winner...

Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera is far from washed up

Cabrera is on a wicked tear and opposing pitchers should be terrified. DETROIT -- The Miguel Cabrera that fans have seen for the last three years was a hitter to be feared. And he wasn't even healthy. Who he is now should be downright terrifying to opposing pitchers. Not since he won the Triple Crown in 2012 has Cabrera looked as powerful as he does right now. Cabrera is on some kind of special tear. Not even a hit by a pitch in his knee on Sunday could slow him down. But two weeks ago there was talk that Cabrera, struggling to get hits for power, was done. Washed up. Finito. Cabrera's only...

Phillies lose to Tigers as Cabrera belts two homers

DETROIT - The Phillies hoped that Miguel Cabrera's sore knee would keep him out of the lineup Monday night. Even a one-game absence by Detroit's slugging first baseman would be a welcome respite.

Tigers 5, Phillies 4: Miguel Cabrera's 2-homer day powers Detroit to slim win

Pelfrey was a hot mess, but at least the bullpen was dependable. DETROIT -- Mike Pelfrey was no help to the Detroit Tigers but four home runs by the offense were just enough to push for a win. Backed by a strong outing and two homers from Miguel Cabrera, the Tigers won 5-4 over the Philadelphia Phillies in the interleague series opener. Another night, another poor start from Mike Pelfrey. This time he got bit by the long ball and the Tigers offense nearly didn't save his bacon. He still doesn't have a coveted win as a Tiger, and while he went six innings on the night and didn't walk a...

Miguel Cabrera homers twice as Tigers slug their way to win over Phillies

Detroit hit four home runs in a 5-4 win on Monday, its seventh in the last eight games. DETROIT -- No need to worry about Miguel Cabrera's knee. Or this offense. The Detroit Tigers slugger hit two more home runs Monday, a day after he was knocked out of a game with a left knee contusion, in a 5-4 win over the Philadelphia Phillies before 26,400 at Comerica Park. Winners of seven of their last eight games, the Tigers (21-21) totaled 12 hits and four home runs, including three solo blasts in the fifth inning. They are .500 again for the first time since May...

The Tigers have won six of their last seven games. DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera appears to be fine. A day after taking a baseball off the knee, the Detroit Tigers first baseman is back in the field and hitting in his usual No. 3 spot for the series opener against the Philadelphia Phillies at Comerica Park (7:10 p.m., Fox Sports Detroit). Cabrera (.315, nine home runs, 26 RBIs) was diagnosed with a left knee contusion after leaving Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Rays and was not available to reporters after.
