Tiger Talk: Miguel Cabrera is Red Hot
Motor City Bengals Presents "Tiger Talk" with hosts Matt Pelc and Dave Holcomb. On this episode, Pelc and Holcomb praise the Detroit Tigers for winning six of their last eight games, which includes two complete-game shutouts from David Price and Anibal Sanchez in two of the last four games.
As great as the pitching has been, no one has been better than Miguel Cabrera. Miggy is hitting .464 with a .892 slugging percentage, three home runs, including two massive bombs, 11 RBI and eight runs in the last eight games. The recent hot streak has Cabrera in the lead for the AL batting title and tied for the AL lead in RBI.
What helps is Yoenis Cespedes and J.D. Martinez are also hitting. Martinez has homered in three straight games and four times in the last eight games. Meanwhile, Cespedes has raised his average to .339 and has four home runs and nine RBI in 67 plate appearances while batting clean up.
In the second segment, Pelc and Holcomb talk about Justin Verlander's debut start from Saturday and when to expect Victor Martinez to return to the lineup.
To end the show, the hosts discusses at length the issues with the All-Star ballot voting this season. The Kansas City Royals currently have eight players projected to start the All-Star Game, including first baseman Eric Hosmer over Cabrera. Tigers fans, get on your computers and vote for Miggy!
