Video: Tigers' Cabrera ducks foul ball

Matt Tuiasosopo nearly does what opposing pitchers can't these days -- knock Miguel Cabrera out.

Nobody can get Detroit Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera out these days.

Heading into Wednesday night's game in Cleveland, he was batting a whopping .384 with 49 RBIs and 12 homers. He hit three homers in Sunday's loss at Texas, then clobbered another in Tuesday's win at Cleveland.

What opposing pitchers haven't been able to -- knock Cabrera out -- one of his own teammates nearly took care of Tuesday night.

A foul ball off Matt Tuiasosopo's bat barely missed hitting the noggin of Cabrera, who was perched in the Tigers' dugout.

Watch the above video to see Cabrera's reaction to the near-miss.
