Miguel Cabrera blasts home run No. 510 of his career
Future Hall of Fame Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera gave the fans at Comerica Park a thrill this afternoon, blasting his 510th home run and moving into 26th place on the MLB all-time home run list.
Cabrera's home run was the lone highlight of the afternoon
Prior to Miggy's blast, the Tigers hadn't put up much of a fight at all against the Astros and former fan favorite Justin Verlander. Heading into the bottom of the 8th inning, the Astros enjoyed a 14-0 lead as well as a 21-2 advantage in hits. The Tigers weren't able to capture any of the magic that propelled them to a dramatic comeback victory on Friday night, eventually dropping what would be their second straight loss to Houston by a 17-4 final score.

It's going to be sad to see a legend like Miguel Cabrera hang up the cleats, but we're happy that he gave us so many memories over the years and will be a Detroit icon forever.
