Cabrera homered, walk, knocked in two runs and scored twice in a 2-for-4 game in Tuesday's win over the Red Sox. Cabrera is on a roll, with four multi-hit games in his last seven, now including two homers, two doubles and six walks in that span. The home run was his 20th, giving him 12 seasons with at least 20 homers in his illustrious career. Still, his power output hasn't quite been up to his career standards -- his .512 slugging percentage would be his worst since his first full season back in 2004 with the Marlins at age 21.
Cabrera went 4-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a walk, a run and two RBI Friday at the White Sox. Cabrera's two-run single in the seventh inning broke open a 5-5 tie, leading the Tigers to a road win. He's now collected multiple hits in each of his last three games, and he's slashing .300/.376/.515 on the year.
Cabrera went 2-for-4 in Friday's 6-0 loss to the Blue Jays. The veteran slugger was one of the few to have some success against southpaw J.A. Happ, turning in the Tigers' only multi-hit effort on the night. Cabrera has a pair of multi-hit outings in July, and has hit safely in nine of his last 12 games.
Cabrera was ejected from Tuesday's game for arguing a call in the sixth inning, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Cabrera's frustrations boiled over after a questionable call in his third plate appearance, which led to his eighth career ejection. Andrew Romine replaced Cabrera at first base, but Cabrera did nothing to warrant further discipline from the league.
Cabrera is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Rays, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports. Cabrera will get a day off for the first time in almost two months for Saturday's contest. In his place, the Tigers will start Jarrod Saltalamacchia at first base. This appears to be just an average day off for Cabrera, and he will likely be back in the lineup Sunday.
