DETROIT (AP) - Tigers slugger Miguel Cabrera has homered in his first at-bat after missing four games because of an injured left hip.
The reigning Triple Crown winner was back in Detroit's lineup for Saturday night's game against the Philadelphia Phillies. He gave the Tigers a 1-0 lead in the first inning with a line drive over the fence in left field.
It was Cabrera's 32nd homer of the year. He has 97 RBIs.
Detroit outfielder Torii Hunter was also back after sitting out Friday night's game against Philadelphia. Hunter left Thursday's game against the Chicago White Sox in the eighth inning because of a sore left Achilles tendon. He said the problem was caused by dress shoes that were too tight.
