The Score: Tigers 4 – Mariners 2
The Gist: The Tigers got a second-consecutive strong outing from a starter — this time Max Scherzer — and this time they managed to win. Birthday boy Miguel Cabrera hit a monstrous (414 feet) three-run homer and Austin Jackson collected three hits to pace the offense. Scherzer went six innings allowing six hits and two earned runs. Jose Valverde earned his third save.
The Quote: “I don’t even know if he got all that ball.” — Jackson on Cabrera’s third-inning home run.
The Stat: .398 – Cabrera’s average against the Mariners since joining Detroit in 2008.
