    No golden-ticket souvenir from Cabrera, no win for Tigers

    Detroit — Tigers fans, and souvenir ball-hawkers, they don’t miss a trick.

    With Miguel Cabrera shooting for career home run No. 500 Friday night, the stands in left field and right field were jam-packed. The rest of Comerica Park, less than (announced crowd of 22,107).

    They didn’t get their golden-ticket souvenir on this night, but they sure did fill the yard with energy. Big ovations every time Cabrera came to the plate, even after he punched out in the first.

    “I loved our fans tonight,” manager AJ Hinch said after the Tigers were beaten 7-4 by the Cleveland Indians. “It was a great atmosphere. The buzz, standing through the Miggy at-bats — really cool. I’m glad they brought it tonight.

    “I hope they bring it tomorrow and I hope we give them a better performance. We didn’t play our best.”

    Tigers designated hitter Miguel Cabrera throws down his bat on his fly out in the fourth inning.

    The place nearly exploded in the fourth when Cabrera hit a towering fly ball to center, 70 feet short of the wall. They did so again in the eighth when he lined out to center after a gritty, seven-pitch battle. 

    “Miggy is living proof that legends exist, they’re not just in your mind,” Hinch said. “This is in front of us every day. This matters.”
