Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera batted in three more runs against the Cleveland Indians Thursday, bringing his season total to 105, but the most memorable moment that evening was Cabrera tripping over the bag at third.
Looking back as he took the last couple steps, Cabrera suddenly took a tumble. Teammates Prince Fielder and Torii Hunter immediately burst out laughing in the dugout, with Hunter leaning over the railing, pointing to his eyes and then at Cabrera and shouting, “We saw that! I saw that!”
Cabrera did not crack a smile, but he did tip his batting helmet.
