    Ryu keeps Tigers’ bats ‘off-balance’ as Blue Jays even series

    Toronto — AJ Hinch understands where the questions are coming from. He, like everyone else, cannot wait to celebrate Miguel Cabrera’s 500th home run. But, as he says almost daily now, that’s not the primary focus for him, for the Tigers or, honestly, for Cabrera. 

    “He’s not trying to homer every at-bat,” Hinch said following the Tigers 3-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday at Rogers Centre. “If he was at 498 we wouldn’t be talking about this. He’s going to play baseball. He’s trying to put up good at-bats.”

    Cabrera, who struck out to end the game, went 0-for-3 with a walk Saturday. He is 4 for 29 since he hit his 499th career home run and has not hit a ball in the air in his last three games. 

    “We will celebrate the next homer he hits,” Hinch said. “But we’re not all waiting around for him to hit it. We’re trying to win.”

    These veteran left-handed starters the Blue Jays are throwing at the Tigers in this series are making that task very difficult.

    After Robbie Ray limited them to a scratched-out run in eight innings Friday night, Hyun Jin Ryu threw seven shutout innings against them on Saturday.
