Miguel Cabrera, Delmon Young continue to climb up Tigers' postseason RBI list

Leon Halip

Two Detroit Tigers sluggers, Miguel Cabrera and Delmon Young, putting up historic postseason numbers for the franchise.

The Detroit Tigers are headed to the World Series, thanks in large part to the play of sluggers Miguel Cabrera and Delmon Young. Their impressive performances during the playoffs have vaulted Cabrera and Young to Nos. 2 and 3, respectively, on the Tigers' career postseason RBI list.

Cabrera and Young carried hot bats against the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series. Cabrera, the Triple Crown winner, was 5 of 16 with two home runs and six RBIs. Young went 6 of 17 with two homers and six RBIs of his own. Three of Young's RBIs were game-winners, and for his efforts, he was named ALCS MVP.

With 22, Tiger legend Hank Greenberg tops the franchise's career postseason RBI list. If Cabrera and Young continue to swing hot bats in the World Series, it's possible that one or both of the players could catch Greenberg.

The Tigers await the winner of the Giants-Cardinals NLCS and will open the Fall Classic on the road at either San Francisco or St. Louis. The Cardinals hold a 3-1 series advantage over San Fran.
