Tigers-Royals Preview 10-2-12

(AP) — The last three Triple Crown winners went on to play in the World Series, and Miguel Cabrera officially has a chance to be the fourth straight to do so if he accomplishes the prestigious feat.

Fresh off clinching their second consecutive AL Central title, the Detroit Tigers look to stay hot in preparation for the playoffs when they continue their final regular-season series against the host Kansas City Royals on Tuesday night.

Cabrera went 4 for 5 and hit his league-leading 44th homer in the sixth inning of Detroit’s 6-3 win over Kansas City on Monday, helping the Tigers wrap up the division title and their first consecutive postseason appearances since 1934 and ’35.
