Bad hip or not, Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera can still hit home runs. Not only can he hit the ball out of the park, he can make Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer laugh. It was Scherzer’s birthday and not only did he pick up his 15th win on the season, he got to see Cabrera pound one out of the park.
Seeing that cracked Scherzer up. He said; “I laugh every day,”It can be a pitcher throwing his `out’ pitch in the right location, and he’ll hit it for a home run. It just doesn’t surprise you, anything he does. He’s obviously the best.”
Scherzer may be right. Miguel Cabrera cannot be stopped, he is one of the best all around hitter in the game today. Even after missing four games his timing is impeccable. The guy doesn’t miss a beat and the Tigers are lucky to have him on the roster.
Cabrera wasted little time hitting the home run in the first inning. The Tigers line-up would then take control of the game and beat the Philadelphia Phillies 10-0. It is no wonder Scherzer is smiling every day. He has 15 wins, his team looks to be in control of the A.L. Central and he is having the season of his life so far.
Not a bad birthday for a guy that smiles each day. He has a lot to smile about.
