Alex Rodriguez drew loud boos in his return home and the New York Yankees overcame Miguel Cabrera’s crushing home run off Mariano Rivera, beating Detroit 4-3 in 10 innings Friday night and snapping the Tigers’ 12-game winning streak.
Cabrera did not want to comment after the game, saying only that “We’ve got to play tomorrow” while looking at his cell phone.
Miguel Cabrera has three home runs in 21 at-bats and if all goes well, he won’t be back at spring training for almost three weeks.
At the start of 2012, three of Detroit’s four major pro teams looked like they might have championship potential.
Miguel Cabrera stood at the plate and watched one last pitch sail by: strike three to end Detroit’s season.
So, what does Dombrowski think about people questioning Jim Leyland’s lineup?
So why would Leyland be to blame for his starters being, well, subpar minus their ace Justin Verlander.
While coach Jim Leyland and other players have their caps off their heads and placed over their hearts with their heads bowed, a few players weren’t following suit.
Cabrera, making the transition from first base to third base this spring, drove a pitch from Jairo Ascancio over the berm in the left field corner.
The 82nd annual Major League Baseball mid-summer classic game will see Avila get the start behind the plate on July 12 at Chase Field in Phoenix.
