Cabrera Hits 3 HRs, but Tigers Fall 11-8 in Texas
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Miguel Cabrera never had a night like this last season when he won baseball's first Triple Crown in 45 years.
And it still wasn't enough to get the Detroit Tigers a win.
David Murphy put Texas ahead for good with a three-run home run just over the wall in right field in the sixth inning, and the Rangers spoiled the second three-homer game of Cabrera's career with an 11-8 victory on Sunday night.
Cabrera last went deep three times in a game against Oakland in Detroit nearly three years ago - or two years before he became the AL's first Triple Crown winner since Boston's Carl Yastrzemski in 1967 by leading the league in average, homers and RBIs.
Cabrera went 4 for 4 and drove in five runs Sunday night and leads the majors with a .387 average and 47 RBIs. He has 11 homers, one off the AL lead.
