Cabrera exits early, Tigers top Indians in rain

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- Despite another early exit by injured Miguel Cabrera, the Detroit Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 7-2 Friday night in a game stopped after seven innings because of rain.
   Victor Martinez doubled twice and drove in two runs as the AL Central-leading Tigers opened a 7 1/2-game lead over second-place Cleveland.
   Cabrera was pulled from a second straight game, this time after two innings because of irritation in his abdominal area. He struck out in his only at-bat.
   Cabrera left Thursday's game after hurting his abdomen while making an awkward slide. He has been bothered by a strained left abdominal wall for over a month and hampered by knee and shin injuries since then.
   The slugger leads the majors with 130 RBIs and a .358 batting average. He also has 43 home runs.
