Cabrera continued his hot hitting from the spring season in which he hit almost .500. In the three-game sweep of Boston, Cabrera hit .455 (5-for-11) with three home runs and eight RBI.
Cabrera has been named the Player of the Week nine times in his career, including five times with the Tigers.
Cabrera hit a dramatic three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth inning Sunday to tie the game at 10-10 and send it into extra innings. He singled and scored in the 11th inning before Alex Avila hit a two-run home run to give the Tigers a 13-12 victory and their first 3-0 start since 2006.
