    Tigers beat Baltimore 5-2 as Miguel Cabrera launches homer No. 499

    Baltimore — One more.

    Miguel Cabrera took the penultimate step toward the hallowed 500 home run plateau Wednesday night and was a catalyst in the Tigers’ 5-2 win over the Orioles. 

    In an eventful fifth inning at Orioles Park at Camden Yards, Cabrera broke a scoreless tie, turning on a 1-2 hanging curveball from Baltimore starter Matt Harvey and sending over the wall in left field – home run No. 499.  

    Tigers' Miguel Cabrera smiles at some fans in the first inning.  Detroit Tigers vs Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards in Baltimore, Maryland on Aug. 11, 2021.

    He had singled in his first two at-bats, bringing his career hits total to 2,950.

    With one more blast, Cabrera will become the 28th player in major league history to join the 500-Homer Club. And he will be the first to hit No. 500, and the bulk of the others, wearing a Tigers uniform.
