Cabrera's 10th inning homer lifts Tigers over White Sox

By AP

CHICAGO – CHICAGO (AP) - Miguel Cabrera broke out of a slump with a solo homer in the 10th inning to lift the Detroit Tigers over the Chicago White Sox 7-6.

The Tigers had squandered a three-run lead in the ninth as closer Fernando Rodney walked the first three batters he faced before he was pulled.

Cabrera, who had been hitless in his last 12 at-bats, led off the 10th with a shot to left-center off White Sox reliever Scott Linebrink (2-4). It was Cabrera's 11th homer of the season.
