Tigers’ Cabrera leaves game

Updated: August 29, 2013

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) – Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera
exited Thursday’s series finale against the Oakland Athletics after making an
awkward slide into second base.

With two outs in the bottom of the fifth inning, Cabrera came up lame when he
was tagged out trying for a double. Cabrera’s left side was clearly bothering
him as he limped off the field.

The team said Cabrera is listed as day-to-day with discomfort in his abdomen.

Don Kelly took over at third base, shifting from right field, in the top of
the sixth.
