I did not post this Sunday night, because it deserves to be re-lived on (late) Monday night.
ESPN was doing a lot of slobbering over Cabrera throughout the night, but it was much deserved. Cabrera is now hitting .387 this season with 11 HR and 47 RBI. SCHWING. In his last 162 games, he has a .351 average with 122 runs, 47 HR, and 152 RBI. That's pretty good. SCHWING. SCHWING.
Cabrera became just the fourth Tiger ever to hit three homers in multiple games, joining Bobby Higginson, Cecil Fielder and Rocky Colavito. More impressive than hitting three dingers, was the fact that one was a mammoth oppo bomb, another was a line drive to center that made the pitcher legitimately flinch, and the third was a jam-job wall scraper. Sheer power and strength.
Yes, I know the Tigers lost, but I would rather focus on history here. The Tigers will be fine. Miguel Cabera meanwhile is the best, most enjoyable hitter I've ever had the pleasure of watching, and he should not be shrugged off because the Tigers lost a game on May 19.
