Twins beat Tigers 6-4, Cabrera suffers season ending injury
Wednesday Jun 13, 2018 12:00am

(DETROIT) – The Detroit Tigers lost much more than a game on Tuesday night. Miguel Cabrera ruptured his left biceps tendon in the third inning of a 6-4 loss to the Minnesota Twins and will have season-ending surgery later this week. Manager Ron Gardenhire said Cabrera's status for the 2019 season won't be known until after the operation. Cabrera swung awkwardly at Jake Odorizzi's slider and immediately walked to the dugout with his arm limply at his side. When he was joined by team trainers, the slugger gestured to his biceps and continued walking into the Detroit clubhouse. The mood in the clubhouse wasn't helped by a late inning loss. Detroit led 2-1 after six innings before Ehire Adrianza's first career grand slam rallied the Twins. Tigers starter Blaine Hardy allowed a leadoff single to Eduardo Escobar to start the seventh and was replaced by Louis Coleman. Coleman (3-1) only threw nine strikes in a 23 pitch outing, walking two batters to load the bases with two out. Gardenhire brought in Warwick Saupold, who went ot a 3-1 count on Adrianza before throwing a fastball that ended up in the right-field stands. The Tigers made it 5-4 with two runs in the seventh. Ryan Pressly (1-1) got the win with a scoreless inning of relief. Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his 14th save. Hardy pitched six-plus innings, allowing one run on three hits and a walk.
