Cabrera reaches homer milestone in Tigers win
Miguel Cabrera homered twice to reach 300 home runs for his Major League Baseball career and help the Detroit Tigers to a 6-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox.
Venezuela's Cabrera on Sunday hit two of the Tigers' four homers, and pitcher Jacob Turner earned his first major league win as the Tigers completed a three-game sweep of the White Sox.
Detroit had already supplanted the White Sox atop the American League Central Division on Saturday with a 7-1 victory.
Quintin Berry and Cabrera hit back-to-back homers in the first inning to put Detroit ahead for good.
Cabrera's second homer, a solo blast in the third inning -- was No. 300 and gave him his 15th multi-homer game since he joined the Tigers in 2008.
He and Andres Galarraga are the only Venezuelan-born players in major league history to reach the milestone. Galarraga hit 399 home runs.
"It means a lot, you know," Cabrera said. "It means a lot to me and my family. But right now, we're focused about playing hard, winning games and try to win the Central."
