WATCH: Miguel Cabrera crushes a three-run homer to left field

It was Game 1 of a short, two game series last night between the Miami Marlins and Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park. Marlins starting pitcher, Adam Conley had his way with the Tigers’ offense through 4 1/3 innings as he had nine strikeouts up to that point and surely looked to be heading into double digits in that category before the game was all said and done.

After retiring Tigers catcher, James McCann via the strikeout, Conley hit the above-mentioned nine strikeouts on the stat sheet. The game soon went downhill big time for the young lefty and before he knew it, the Tigers had put up a seven spot in the fifth inning. Conley would exit the game after 4 1/3 innings pitched with five earned runs, two of the runs being home runs. All of the offense produced by the Tigers came via the home run ball. Shortstop, Jose Iglesias got the first runs of the game for Detroit when he hit a two-run home run to bring the Tigers within a run of tying the game. Then, the big hit of the inning put the Tigers ahead by two runs when Miguel Cabrera crushed a three-run homer to left field. It would serve as some history for the big fella as well. Miggy became only the 50th player in MLB history to hit a home run against every team. Not to shabby, I’d say.

Here’s Miguel Cabrera’s blast.

Nick Castellanos put an exclamation point on the Tigers’ big 5th inning by sending a two-run homer to dead center field for good measure and put Detroit ahead by four runs.

The Tigers would see their lead cut to two runs entering the ninth inning, but Francisco Rodriguez slammed the door on the Marlins, picking up his 21st save of the season in the process, en route to a 7-5 victory for Detroit.

What an offensive outbreak it was by the home team last night in the 5th inning!

Born & raised in the mitten. Grew up in Traverse City, but moved down to the Redford, MI area after my Dad tragically passed away in 1999 because that's where he was being buried and we wanted to be down there with him. I'm an avid Detroit sports fan, growing up in the state of Michigan and having such a solid block of teams to root for is something special. Iv'e always liked discussing Detroit sports whether it be about the past, the present or even what the future holds for Michigan sports teams. It's a long time coming as I am very excited to be apart of the DSN team and be able to construct interesting features to be posted for Detroit Sports fans to read/discuss about.
