4/16/08 Linescore of the Day: Miguel Cabrera

Miguel Cabrera:  4 for 6, HR, 2 runs, 5 rbis

Cabrera knocked out his 3rd homer of the season to help the Tigers to their fifth win of the year and 3rd win in a row.  The Tigers do have life!  It wasn’t even close as Detroit clobbered the Indians 13-2. 

I have to give special mention to Carlos Zambrano who did it with his arm and the bat.  Zambrano allowed just 2 runs in 7 innings (and only one walk!) in the Cubs 12-3 defeat of Dusty Baker’s Reds.  In addition, Zam went 3 for 4 at the plate including a double, rbi and a run. 

At this point last year, Carlos had a 7.88 ERA.  And we all remember how he pitched in April two years ago.  Now four starts is a small sample size but is his 3.04 ERA a good omen for the team?
