The Detroit Tigers rode a 4 hit performance by Miguel Cabrera that included his MLB leading 44th homer run and 200th hit of the season to a 6-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals last night and the American League Central Pennant! Cabrera made a huge statement in the AL MVP race and also pushed closer to the capturing first Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski won it in 1967.

The 2012 Tigers team is the first with back-to-back postseason berths since Hall of Famer Charlie Gehringer led Detroit to a pair of World Series in 1934-35.  While the Tigers don’t know who they’ll face, they do know that the AL Division Series will start at Comerica Park on Saturday and Sunday.
