Miguel Cabrera the Detroit Tigers 3rd baseman went 4 for 5 last night and hit a home run to continue doing the same thing he has done all season.

Miguel Cabrera leads the American league in batting average at .329, he leads the league in home runs with 44 and he leads the league in runs batted in with 137.
Cabrera has played in 159 games this season for the Tigers, they would be lost without him. He may not be the best defensive third baseman, but what he brings to the plate far out weighs his in abilities in the field. When the Tigers needed to turn things up to make a run at taking the A.L. Central, it was Miguel Cabrera who turned up the heat on the Tigers opponents.
