DETROIT (AP) - Miguel Cabrera hit a majestic, game-tying homer in the ninth inning the other night.

After he crossed the plate, the Detroit Tigers slugger pointed to someone in the stands. Cabrera declined to say the next day who he was gesturing toward at Comerica Park _ perhaps trying to keep his story on the field.

Cabrera is having a great season so far, with stats that have some wondering if he’ll be the first player to hit for the Triple Crown since 1967 when Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski led the American League in batting average, homers and RBIs.

Even if Cabrera falls short of that feat, he seems to have made some life-improving changes.

A drunken night during the final weekend of last season led to a fight with his wife and a trip to the police station. Cabrera said in March he had given up drinking alcohol and didn’t miss it.
