Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera hits 1st home run of 2017 season

Cabrera’s homer was the seventh of his career off Twins starter Phil Hughes.

Miguel Cabrera has had a rough start to the 2017 season, but he wasn’t going to stay down for long. Consider Thursday, April 13, the breakout.

Cabrera has worn out Minnesota Twins starter Phil Hughes in his career, with 20 hits (including seven homers!) in 48 at-bats.

Of course, Cabrera was ready to start raking at any moment.

With the Tigers heading to Cleveland on Friday, this home run could not have come at a better time for Cabrera.
