Cabrera drives in 2 to tie Williams, Tigers beat Royals 7-5

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Miguel Cabrera drove in the tying and go-ahead runs, matching Ted Williams for 14th place on the career RBI list, and the Detroit Tigers rallied past the Kansas City Royals 7-5 on Tuesday night to snap a four-game skid.

Cabrera's sacrifice fly in the fifth inning made it 3-3, and he had an RBI grounder for the Tigers' first run in a four-run seventh. He equaled Williams with 1,838 RBIs.

Later in the seventh, Cabrera stole third and scored on a wild throw by catcher MJ Melendez. It was just his second stolen base in the past seven seasons, and his first since Sept. 11, 2020, also a steal of third.

The Royals committed three errors in the seventh behind Jose Cuas (2-1), who allowed four runs, only one of them earned. Kansas City had four errors overall - two by shortstop Bobby Witt Jr. - as its three-game winning streak ended.

Beau Brieske (3-6) settled in after some early trouble, allowing one hit to his last 16 batters. He worked six innings, allowing three runs on five hits and striking out four.

Gregory Soto worked the ninth for his 18th save.

Melendez ripped Brieske's first pitch of the game to left-center for a triple, then scored on Andrew Benintendi's single. Benintendi, named to his first All-Star team this week, had two hits and drove in two runs.

  • Kyle Isbel had an RBI double in the second for Kansas City, the first of his three hits, and Emmanuel Rivera drove him in with a double to make it 3-2.


    RHP Matt Manning (60-day injured list, right shoulder inflammation) threw two innings for Class A Lakeland.
