DETROIT (AP) - Detroit Tigers star Miguel Cabrera has been pulled from a second straight game, this time after two innings because of irritation in his abdominal area.

The reigning Triple Crown winner made an early exit Friday night against Cleveland. He struck out in his only at-bat for the AL Central leaders.

Cabrera left Thursday’s game after hurting his abdomen while making an awkward slide in the fifth inning.

Tigers manager Jim Leyland said he checked with Cabrera on Friday and said the third baseman was ready to play.

Cabrera has been bothered by a strained left abdominal wall for over a month and hampered by knee and shin injuries since then.

Cabrera leads the majors with 130 RBIs and a .358 batting average. He also has 43 home runs.
