DETROIT -- Theres little doubt that Miguel Cabrera is one of the best hitters in baseball. And often, its his massive home runs that fans, players and managers remember. Thursday, though, he delivered in a different way. Cabrera found infield gaps with a pair of two-out hits to drive in three runs in Detroits 7-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox. "Im just trying to hit the ball into a hole," Cabrera said. "You have to be able to use the bat to hit the pitch where they give you room." Of course, for most players, it isnt quite that simple. "I know Im supposed to stand here and talk about how amazing Miggy is, but weve just gotten to a point where we expect this kind of thing," winning pitcher Max Scherzer said. "Were thrilled when anyone else does something like that, but he does it all the time." Rajai Davis homered, doubled and singled for the Tigers, but he wasnt going to pretend to be in Cabreras territory. "I had a great day, which is fun, but that man does it every day against every pitcher in the league," Davis said. "He plays in this park and he wins batting titles and Triple Crowns. Hes a great, great hitter." Scherzer (2-1) struck out 10, allowing two runs and seven hits in six innings. A high pitch count ended his outing early. "Theres a reason hes the Cy Young winner," said Adam Dunn, who homered off Scherzer. "You go against (Justin) Verlander one night and then you have to go against Scherzer, and they are both just so tough. They have so many pitches that they can throw for strikes that you are always in trouble against them." Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his fourth save in six tries. He got the final two outs on a strikeout where Jose Abreu was called for interfering with catcher Bryan Holadays throw to second base on a stolen-base attempt. Holaday was amused to find out he had been credited with a game-ending unassisted double play. "Ive never even seen anything like that before," he laughed. "Thats my first one of those, whatever what it was." White Sox manager Robin Ventura asked plate umpire Dan Iassogna for an explanation, but didnt argue the call. "It was just interference," Ventura said. Jose Quintana (1-1) allowed three runs in six innings. Tigers reliever Al Alburquerque pitched the seventh, but Joba Chamberlain allowed two runs in the eighth to let Chicago pull within one. Detroit scored twice in the bottom half. The teams traded runs in the second, with Dunn hitting a long homer over the scoreboard in right-centre field before the Tigers answered with Austin Jacksons triple and Nick Castellanos single. Detroit went ahead in the third when Ian Kinsler singled, advanced on a wild pitch and scored as Cabrera slapped an outside pitch the other way for a single. "Facing that guy in that situation is one of the least appealing situations in baseball," Ventura said. "He can beat you with a grounder into the hole or he can hit one 500 feet. Thats tough to stop." Chicago scored just once in the first five innings, striking out nine times, but forced Scherzers pitch count up to 96, meaning that Detroit would need multiple innings from its struggling bullpen. Davis made it 3-1 in the fifth with his second homer of the season, a shot to left that cleared the Tigers bullpen. Dayan Viciedo left off the White Sox sixth with a triple when Torii Hunter lost a fly ball in the sun. Alexei Ramirez followed with a sacrifice fly to cut Detroits lead to one run on Scherzers 102nd pitch. Ramirez, who made several outstanding defensive plays at shortstop, prevented a run with a diving stop on Davis grounder in the seventh. It went for an infield hit, loading the bases with one out, but Maikel Cleto got Kinsler to pop out. Daniel Webb came in and Cabrera bounced his second pitch up the middle for a two-run single. The White Sox started the eighth with three hits off Chamberlain, including an RBI single by Ramirez, and a throwing error by Holaday allowed a second run to score. Holaday, though, had an RBI single in the bottom of the inning, and Davis followed with a two-out double to make it 7-4. NOTES: The Tigers announced during the game that they will be honouring Jim Leyland in a pregame ceremony before their May 10th game against Minnesota. Leyland managed the Tigers to a franchise-record four post-season appearances before retiring after last season. ... White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham made his season debut after missing the first 22 games with a strained oblique muscle. He went 0 for 4 and struck out three times. He was called up Wednesday night from his injury-rehab assignment with Double-A Birmingham, while LHP Charlie Leesman was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte. ... With Nathan trying to close out the game, fans down the right-field line started loudly booing a man in a Boston Bruins jersey. Game 4 of the Red Wings-Bruins NHL playoff series was scheduled for Thursday night at nearby Joe Louis Arena. Lucas Patrick Jersey . On Tuesday, the star questioned whether that was still the case. Speaking to reporters at a charity event, Johnson said: "I just kind of wonder sometimes: Is this still the place for me?" Johnsons comments came after he was asked why he recently skipped a voluntary minicamp. Dean Lowry Jersey . -- Barry Bonds is all set to return to the San Francisco Giants. http://www.custompackersjersey.com/custo...ge-2-1532r.html. -- The court fight over NFL concussions should heat up soon as a judge in Philadelphia weighs the fairness of the proposed $765 million settlement. Aaron Rodgers Jersey . Gonzalez participated in his final game on Sunday, Atlantas 21-20 defeat at the hands of the NFC South champion Carolina Panthers, having posted four catches for 46 yards. Bryan Bulaga Jersey . Trailing 2-1 from the first leg, Fiorentina levelled on aggregate in the 14th minute when Joaquin Sanchez Rodriguez headed back a long ball from David Pizarro and Pasqual smashed home an angled volley.If Greg Carey were a college free agent 20 years ago, his phone would have been ringing off the hook with NHL teams calling about signing him. Modern technology gave him a different problem. "I ran out of my phone minutes on my AT&T calling plan for the first time," Carey said in a phone interview, after getting some more minutes. "Its been a little overwhelming at times, but its been fun. Its kind of a good problem to have." A handful of teams showed interest in Carey before the Phoenix Coyotes signed the Hamilton native to a one-year entry-level contract Wednesday. The 23-year-old St. Lawrence University forward was so sought-after because hes again a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award as the top NCAA mens hockey player. Carey, who led the NCAA with 39 assists and was second with 58 points in 38 games, picked the Coyotes because he believes they offer a good chance to make an impact on offence. "Ive kind of prided myself in my college career in my ability to contribute offensively to kind of put pucks in the back of the net and create plays and make chances," Carey said. "Theyre kind of happy with my style of play and excited to have me to add my little offensive flare to their system." The Coyotes, a middle-of-the-pack offensive team this season, dealt young forward prospect Chris Brown to the Washington Capitals in a trade that got them veteran Martin Erat. Carey is set to report to tthe same Portland Pirates AHL team that Brown had 35 points for this season.dddddddddddd Carey would obviously love to be able to play for the soon-to-be-renamed Arizona Coyotes next season but said hell do "whatever I need to do" there or in Portland. Assistant general manager Brad Treliving told the team website that Carey has been a point-producer and goal-scorer at every level but also that its a big step into the world of pro hockey. Signing a one-year contract also makes 2014-15 a big risk-reward season for Carey, who wasnt drafted out of minor midget and played tier-2 junior A hockey with the Burlington Cougars before going to St. Lawrence University in upstate New York. "You get a year to come in and prove yourself and kind of show what youve got and kind of put everything on the line," Carey said. "Its a terrific opportunity for college players after were done. ... Its a challenge that you kind of look forward to." Carey looks forward to brother Matt joining him, if the St. Lawrence junior forward opts to make that move. Nothing was done on that front by mid-day Thursday to make sure Greg and Matt would continue to be teammates. "Hes dealing with his advisers and looking for what the best fit is for him," Greg Carey said. "I loved playing with him in college. Its all opportunity and I know hes looking for his best opportunity. And well see what happens here with him." ' ' '
