Tigers keep 2-game lead over Twins in AL Central

September 27, 2009

No matter how much they win, Miguel Cabrera and the Detroit Tigers can't seem to shake Minnesota in the AL Central.

Cabrera got four hits and drove in four runs, giving him at least 100 RBIs for the sixth consecutive season, and Detroit rallied from a five-run deficit to beat the Chicago White Sox 12-5 on Saturday night.

Curtis Granderson, Placido Polanco and Gerald Laird each had three of Detroit's 20 hits, including singles in the decisive seventh inning, to help the Tigers win for the fifth time in six games.

The first-place Tigers, two games ahead of Minnesota in the AL Central, host the Twins in a four-game series beginning Monday. Minnesota won 11-6 at Kansas City on Saturday night.
