The big bats are breaking out.

MLB: Detroit Tigers at Chicago White Sox Mike DiNovo-USA TODAY Sports

Well, it took 24 games, which felt like an eternity, but Miguel Cabrera has homered folks, and all is right with the world.

Nicholas Castellanos and Cabrera have each posted excellent numbers against White Sox starter Carlos Rodon, and nothing changed on Friday night. Castellanos has been heating up of late, and greeted Rodon with a missile to deep right-center field in the first inning. Cabrera followed him by flicking a 1-1 fastball over the right field wall without even fully extending his arms.

The home run marked the first long ball in 363 days for the legendary batsmith. Cabrera last homered off of Miguel Castro in a game against the Baltimore Orioles on April 28 of last year. Cabrera later missed a second home run by a foot in doubling in Jeimer Candelario. White Sox pitching always seems to be the cure for whatever ails the Tigers.
