The hits just keep on coming.
Cabrera's first home run on the day came right after the Tigers took the lead in the first inning. After the White Sox scored one run in the top of the first off Tigers starter Jacob Turner, Quintin Berry hit a two-run home run in the bottom half of the inning off White Sox starter Philip Humber to give the Tigers a 2-1 lead. Cabrera immediately followed that with a solo home run to put Detroit up 3-1.
In his next at-bat in the the third inning, Cabrera made it 4-1 with a 457-foot home run to straight away centerfield. The home run was the 300th of his career, making Cabrera the 11th youngest player ever to reach that mark in Major League Baseball. Later in the inning, Brennan Boesch got into the long ball act with a two-run shot to right-center. It was his 11th of the season and made it 6-1 Detroit.
Jacob Turner went 5 1/3 innings, giving up three earned runs on seven hits. He struck out three and walked none and got his first win of his Major League career.
With the win, the Tigers moved to 1 1/2 games ahead of the White Sox in the Central Division. Detroit will start a nine-game road trip on Tuesday in Detroit after going 6-1 in their homestand against the Los Angeles Angels and Chicago.
