Miguel Cabrera talks about ‘hilarious’ play against Royals

Miguel Cabrera is ALWAYS having fun

On Thursday night, Detroit Tigers DH Miguel Cabrera moved three hits closer to 3,000 in his career but following the game, in which the Tigers won 4-2 over the Kansas City Royals, Miggy wanted to talk about his speed.

“Woooo,” Miguel Cabrera said. “Did you see that?! Speedy Gonzalez.”

Cabrera was referring to a play that took place in the second inning in which he tagged up from third base on a medium-depth fly ball and decided to challenge Royals left fielder Andrew Benintendi.

Benintendi’s throw beat Cabrera but Miggy made a great slide to the back of home plate, avoiding the tag of Royals catcher, Salvador Perez.

“That was hilarious,” Tigers starter Casey Mize said. “I’m trying to stay focused and I’m seeing that happen. It was really funny. And honestly, it was a huge play. And the three hits, too, just awesome.

“I’m just trying to focus every at-bat, every pitch,” Cabrera said. “Just don’t try to put pressure on myself and go from there. Just go out and make something happen.”
