Tigers Beat Rangers as Cabrera's Base Hit Hits Base: Tied 2-2 with the Texas Rangers in the sixth inning, the Detroit Tigers broke it open with a Ryan Raburn single, Miguel Cabrera double, Victor Martinez triple and Delmon Young homer -- the first natural cycle by a team in postseason history -- and won 7-5. Justin Verlander threw a career high 133 pitches in the win. The American League Championship Series goes back to Texas with the Rangers lead narrowed to 3-2. Cabrera's double was looking like a double play when the ball caromed off third base and went over fielder Adrian Beltre's head. Drew Sharp of the Detroit Free Press compares the ricochet to Lou Brock's standing tag out at home plate in the 1968 World Series between the Tigers and St. Louis Cardinals. He asks, "Does the third-base ricochet become this series' Lou Brock moment?"
