Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera sent a grand slam deep into the left field seats in the fourth inning this afternoon against the Orioles, his 17th home run on the season. Current leader Chris Davis, sitting on 19 homers, did not leave the confines of Camden Yards today. Cabrera already leads the American League in batting average (.369) and runs batted in (65) as he attempts to repeat as a Triple Crown winner. Cabrera became the first player since Carl Yastrzemski in 1967 to achieve the Triple Crown.
The Tigers’ 10-run output this afternoon — thanks to homers from Cabrera, Victor Martinez, Jhonny Peralta, Alex Avila, and Prince Fielder — boosts their runs per game average to 5.24, an MLB-best mark.
