    Manning impresses in Tigers’ sweep of Baltimore


    Baltimore — A large contingent of fans seated behind the Tigers’ dugout waving Venezuelan flags Thursday afternoon were chanting, “We want Miggy, We want Miggy.”

    Miguel Cabrera, who they came to see whack home run No. 500, was not in the lineup, which was a bummer for them. But two of his Venezuelan countrymen were very much in the game, and both gave them plenty to get excited about.

    Renato Nunez (Valencia, Venezuela) and Victor Reyes (Barcelona, Venezuela) hit two-run home runs in a five-run fourth inning sending the Tigers to a 6-4 win and a series sweep of the Baltimore Orioles at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

    “Yeah, those are my people,” Nunez said, laughing, with the WWE-styled championship belt for offensive player of the game draped over his shoulder. “They’re not my family, but I know they’ve been here this whole series. They are following Miggy to 500 homers.

    “But they were my people today.”
