Miggy claims Tigers' postseason RBIs lead

Slugging third baseman passes Detroit icon Greenberg with Nos. 23, 24

DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera spent most of the regular season earning comparisons to Hank Greenberg for his run production. His two-RBI game on Wednesday earned him a mark all his own, as he took the Tigers' postseason RBI mark from Greenberg's ledger.

Cabrera entered Game 4 of the American League Championship Series -- a 7-3 Detroit win over Boston that evened the ALCS at two games apiece -- tied with Greenberg with 22 RBIs as a Tiger. He added a pair of RBI singles in Game 4, driving in Torii Hunter on a two-out liner to center off Jake Peavy in the second inning before sending a ground ball through the middle in the fourth off Brandon Workman to drive in Austin Jackson.

Greenberg's 22 RBIs came in 23 career postseason games, all of them in the World Series. Wednesday marked Cabrera's 33rd postseason game in a Detroit uniform.

"We won, and we had a lot of fun," Cabrera said afterward. "We need to come in tomorrow ready to play and try to get some run support."
