• Cabrera HR pushes Tigers to sweep Braves

    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Apr 28, 2013
    Cabrera hit a three-run homer on that count Sunday night, and it broke the game open in the seventh inning, helping the Detroit Tigers finish off a three-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves with an 8-3 victory. Atlanta's Mike Minor allowed a three-run homer to Jackson in the third, and although the Braves came back to tie it, Cabrera doubled and scored in the sixth to make it 4-3. With seven quality innings from Doug Fister, three-run home runs from Austin Jackson and Miguel Cabrera and an Omar Infante solo shot fueling an 8-3 win, the Tigers completed the weekend dismantling of a Braves team that came to town with the best record in the Majors. "We're here to win games," said Cabrera, whose line drive into the right-field seats on a 3-0 pitch seemingly encapsulated the series. In the process, Detroit seemingly provided a reminder why this is still one of the most dangerous teams in the big leagues, despite the .500 record they carried into the series.
