Miguel Cabrera hits 400th career homer in Tigers' win

Miguel Cabrera hit his 400th home run and Jose Iglesias had an RBI single in the 10th inning -- nearly five hours later -- as the Tigers earned a 4-3 win over the host Cardinals yesterday.

Cabrera's milestone shot gave him the most homers by a Venezuelan-born player, passing Andres Galarraga. The solo shot came in the first inning just before a rain delay of 1 hour, 20 minutes.

"He's definitely the best hitter in baseball and he's hands down the smartest player in baseball as well," Tigers starter David Price said.

Adrian Beltre of Texas hit his 400th homer Friday. Cabrera tied Beltre for 52nd place on the career list, with Duke Snider next at 407.

"That means a lot to me," Cabrera said about the milestone. "But I just want to win and play games."
