    Miguel Cabrera clubs No. 500, Detroit Tigers outlast Blue Jays in 11

    Toronto — As Miguel Cabrera was being mobbed by his teammates on his way back into the dugout after he clubbed historical home run No. 500 in the sixth inning Sunday, he yelled, “Let’s go.”

    The home run made it a 1-1 game and his message was clear — “We still got work to do.”

    The Tigers' Miguel Cabrera waves to the crowd after hitting his 500th career home run in the sixth inning Sunday in Toronto.

    They pushed it to extra innings, improbably, and then in the top of the 11th, rookie Daz Cameron and Willi Castro delivered back-to-back, two-out doubles and the Tigers were able to celebrate Cabrera’s milestone day with a 5-3 win in the rubber match of the three-game set against the Toronto Blue Jays. 

    Joe Jimenez, the sixth Tigers’ reliever, went through the top of the Jays’ batting order — Bo Bichette, Marcus Semien and Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. — to lock it down. 

    BOX SCORE: Tigers 5, Blue Jays 3 (11 innings)

    Cameron’s rifle shot into the corner in left against left-hander Kirby Snead came with two strikes. The Tigers were also down to their last strike when they pushed the game into extra innings in the top of the ninth.
