Tigers lose to Twins; Cabrera out for season
DETROIT – Miguel Cabrera ruptured his left biceps tendon Tuesday night, an injury that will sideline the Detroit slugger for the rest of the season, and the Tigers lost 6-4 to the Minnesota Twins.
The two-time AL MVP will have surgery this week, the Tigers said. Cabrera, playing his 12th game since missing 26 with a hamstring strain, exited in the third inning and underwent an MRI during the game.
Ehire Adrianza hit his first career grand slam to help Minnesota rally.
The Twins trailed 2-1 going into the seventh inning, but Tigers starter Blaine Hardy left after allowing a leadoff single to Eduardo Escobar.
Louis Coleman (3-1) only threw nine strikes in a 23-pitch outing, walking two batters to load the bases with two outs. Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire brought in Warwick Saupold, who went to a 3-1 count on Adrianza before throwing a fastball that ended up in the right-field stands.
YANKEES 3, NATIONALS 0: In New York, Didi Gregorius ended a long power outage with a pair of home runs, and Washington slugger Bryce Harper left in the eighth inning after he was hit by a pitch for the second time.
Harper fell to the ground in pain when hit on the right elbow by a 90 mph pitch from CC Sabathia (4-1) in the fifth inning. He remained in the game but came out after he was hit on the left foot by Dellin Betances' 89 mph slider leading off the eighth.
Gregorius drove a hanging curveball from Tanner Roark (3-7) into the Yankees bullpen in right-center in a two-run second.
REDS 5, ROYALS 1, 10 inn.: In Kansas City, Missouri, Joey Votto hit a bases-loaded triple in the 10th inning after Billy Hamilton slipped out of a rundown.
The Reds tied it in the ninth on Tyler Barnhart's homer to lead off the inning. Barnhart drove a 2-2 pitch by Kelvin Herrera over the right-field fence into in the Royals' bullpen.
