Cabrera's homer gives Tigers rain-shortened win over Indians

DETROIT (AP) Miguel Cabrera's fifth-inning homer might as well have come in the ninth.

Cabrera hit a tiebreaking three-run shot moments before the game was halted for good, and the Detroit Tigers came away with a rain-shortened 6-3 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night, keeping pace with Baltimore in the AL wild-card race.

Detroit trails the Orioles by one game for the AL's second wild card, and the Tigers certainly caught a break in this one. The rain was a factor throughout the evening - there was also a delay during the third inning - and it was coming down when Detroit began its rally in the fifth.
