The Detroit Tigers remain undefeated in games, but not replay challenges. They beat the Orioles, 10-4, this afternoon at Comerica Park. Miguel Cabrera went 4-for-5 with an RBI single in the sixth inning and a two-run home run in the eighth. The home run was Cabrera's 2,000th career hit. He became the ninth player to reach 2,000 hits before his 31st birthday and the seventh-youngest to reach that mark. The start of the game was delayed 10 minutes due to inclement weather. The Tigers had a 3--2 lead in the bottom of the fourth when the game was delayed 34 minutes by rain. Rajai Davis delivered a three-run home run when play resumed and Torii Hunter added a solo home run for his first hit of the season to put the Tigers ahead, 7-2. The Orioles took a 2-0 lead in the first inning when Chris Davis hit a two-run double to left on an 0-2 count off Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez. But Sanchez bounced back, retiring the next eight batters he faced. He allowed two hits, three walks and two earned runs over four innings with three strikeouts. His day ended early due to the rain delay.
