Cabrera's homer gives Tigers sweep, 4-3 over Twins

Posted: Updated:

Miguel Cabrera's two-run, one-out homer in the ninth inning lifted Detroit to a 4-3 victory over Minnesota on Sunday afternoon, as the Tigers finished a three-game sweep of the Twins in style after leaving 10 men on base earlier in the game.

Cabrera crushed a 0-2 pitch to center field from Matt Capps (0-3), who took his first blown save in 10 tries.

Rookie Quintin Berry started the inning with a single.

Jose Valverde followed for his ninth save in 11 attempts.

Brayan Villarreal (1-1) recorded two outs in the eighth for the victory.

Prince Fielder had two more hits and went 9 for 12 in the series plus two walks for the Tigers, who have won 21 of their last 27 games against the Twins.
