DETROIT -- As Miguel Cabrera skied a 97-mph fastball to right field, high and deep into the night sky, it was hard to know for sure where the ball would land. Steven Souza Jr. followed it from the grass, to the track and then to the wall before reaching up unsuccessfully as it landed in the second row.
For Cabrera, who hit his first walk-off since 2013 and the seventh of his career in Detroit's 5-3 win on Thursday, the result was almost unexpected.
No matter how much pain he's in on a given day, Cabrera is showing that he can fight through it and be the same force for Detroit he's been the past decade. An atypically slow start doesn't erase his numbers, which are likely to land him in the Hall of Fame. And as he proved on Thursday, he's still capable of putting a big swing on a ball when it counts.
