Remember When Miguel Cabrera Hit A Game Tying Home Run Off Mariano Rivera?
Mariano Rivera will be inducted into the Baseball Hall Of Fame This July. One of his more memorable appearances against the Tigers happened in a game back in 2013.
The game was in New York. The Yankees were up 3-1 in the Top of the 9th.
Austin Jackson was on second and there was two outs. Mariano Rivera is on for the save and up for the Tigers is Miguel Cabrera. The best reliever against one of the best hitters in the game.
It is mentioned during the at bat that Cabrera was 0-4 in his career against Rivera. The stat was about to change. A seven pitch at bat, which included hitting a foul ball into his knee, turned into a game tying 2 run home run into center field.
The Tigers ended up losing the game in extra innings but it was great to see two of the best go head to head.
