Austin Jackson stunned speechless by Miguel Cabrera's game-winning home run

With two men on base and the Tigers trailing the Orioles 1-0 during Tuesday's ninth inning, Miguel Cabrera once again proved that he crushes all pitches indiscriminately. On a belt-high 84 mph curveball from Tommy Hunter, Cabrera blasted his sixth home run of the season, giving the Tigers the lead on their way to a 4-1 victory. 

And when Cabrera returned to the dugout, Austin Jackson shot him this look: 

Austin Jackson stares

Based on my years of studying facial expressions, this can mean one of four things: 

- I recognize that guy from high school, but I really don't want to say hello. 

- Don't look now, but there is ... a ... ghost ... behind ... you.

- Dude. Dude. Duuuuude. The dugout walls are melting.

- How the #{{field}}amp;amp;! did you hit that, you baseball alien? 

Can you really blame Jackson? At this point, it's a statisical probability that Miguel Cabrera is an outer space creature sent here to crush baseballs.
