DETROIT -- Theres little doubt that Miguel Cabrera is one of the best hitters in baseball. And often, its his massive home runs that fans, players and managers remember. Thursday, though, he delivered in a different way. Cabrera found infield gaps with a pair of two-out hits to drive in three runs in Detroits 7-4 victory over the Chicago White Sox. "Im just trying to hit the ball into a hole," Cabrera said. "You have to be able to use the bat to hit the pitch where they give you room." Of course, for most players, it isnt quite that simple. "I know Im supposed to stand here and talk about how amazing Miggy is, but weve just gotten to a point where we expect this kind of thing," winning pitcher Max Scherzer said. "Were thrilled when anyone else does something like that, but he does it all the time." Rajai Davis homered, doubled and singled for the Tigers, but he wasnt going to pretend to be in Cabreras territory. "I had a great day, which is fun, but that man does it every day against every pitcher in the league," Davis said. "He plays in this park and he wins batting titles and Triple Crowns. Hes a great, great hitter." Scherzer (2-1) struck out 10, allowing two runs and seven hits in six innings. A high pitch count ended his outing early. "Theres a reason hes the Cy Young winner," said Adam Dunn, who homered off Scherzer. "You go against (Justin) Verlander one night and then you have to go against Scherzer, and they are both just so tough. They have so many pitches that they can throw for strikes that you are always in trouble against them." Joe Nathan pitched the ninth for his fourth save in six tries. He got the final two outs on a strikeout where Jose Abreu was called for interfering with catcher Bryan Holadays throw to second base on a stolen-base attempt. Holaday was amused to find out he had been credited with a game-ending unassisted double play. "Ive never even seen anything like that before," he laughed. "Thats my first one of those, whatever what it was." White Sox manager Robin Ventura asked plate umpire Dan Iassogna for an explanation, but didnt argue the call. "It was just interference," Ventura said. Jose Quintana (1-1) allowed three runs in six innings. Tigers reliever Al Alburquerque pitched the seventh, but Joba Chamberlain allowed two runs in the eighth to let Chicago pull within one. Detroit scored twice in the bottom half. The teams traded runs in the second, with Dunn hitting a long homer over the scoreboard in right-centre field before the Tigers answered with Austin Jacksons triple and Nick Castellanos single. Detroit went ahead in the third when Ian Kinsler singled, advanced on a wild pitch and scored as Cabrera slapped an outside pitch the other way for a single. "Facing that guy in that situation is one of the least appealing situations in baseball," Ventura said. "He can beat you with a grounder into the hole or he can hit one 500 feet. Thats tough to stop." Chicago scored just once in the first five innings, striking out nine times, but forced Scherzers pitch count up to 96, meaning that Detroit would need multiple innings from its struggling bullpen. Davis made it 3-1 in the fifth with his second homer of the season, a shot to left that cleared the Tigers bullpen. Dayan Viciedo left off the White Sox sixth with a triple when Torii Hunter lost a fly ball in the sun. Alexei Ramirez followed with a sacrifice fly to cut Detroits lead to one run on Scherzers 102nd pitch. Ramirez, who made several outstanding defensive plays at shortstop, prevented a run with a diving stop on Davis grounder in the seventh. It went for an infield hit, loading the bases with one out, but Maikel Cleto got Kinsler to pop out. Daniel Webb came in and Cabrera bounced his second pitch up the middle for a two-run single. The White Sox started the eighth with three hits off Chamberlain, including an RBI single by Ramirez, and a throwing error by Holaday allowed a second run to score. Holaday, though, had an RBI single in the bottom of the inning, and Davis followed with a two-out double to make it 7-4. NOTES: The Tigers announced during the game that they will be honouring Jim Leyland in a pregame ceremony before their May 10th game against Minnesota. Leyland managed the Tigers to a franchise-record four post-season appearances before retiring after last season. ... White Sox 2B Gordon Beckham made his season debut after missing the first 22 games with a strained oblique muscle. He went 0 for 4 and struck out three times. He was called up Wednesday night from his injury-rehab assignment with Double-A Birmingham, while LHP Charlie Leesman was optioned to Triple-A Charlotte. ...

The nine-time CFL all-star offensive lineman announced his retirement Wednesday after playing 15 seasons and winning three Grey Cups in Montreal. The move was largely expected after Flory became the new president of the CFL Players Association in late March. The Regina native suffered a season-ending biceps tear July 12 in a game against the Calgary Stampeders, though he was determined to return this season if he had not won his leadership bid. "It was a decision I made when I chose to run that I told myself that if I did win that I was going to retire," Flory said at an Olympic Stadium press conference. "It was a way for me to segue out of football from the playing side of it but still stay involved with the game and being around the guys and trying to represent them. "I was committed to coming back. I was training, I was doing everything, and I believe in this club and the direction that theyre going so I wanted to be a part of it." Flory felt that he could not do justice to either job by continuing to play while heading up the players union. "I didnt want to shortchange the players or the Alouettes by trying to do both jobs at the same time," Flory said. "Over my 15-year career I committed myself wholly to being the best football player I could be and I want to do the same in my new role as president of the players association." The 37-year-old is currently participating in talks with the league on a new collective bargaining agreement, though he declined to comment on any of those issues Wednesday. "Ive been a player rep since 2002 and sometimes there needs to be a guy who is the voice of the guys, and not everybody has the ability or the strength or the desire to talk to coaches or to deal with a lot of things that players have to deal with," Flory said. "It was something I likked and I cared about and I wanted to serve the guys .dddddddddddd.. and I was elected, and Im thankful for that. But over my time in Montreal I was always a part of the players association and I believe in the players and trying to represent them the best I can." Twice the CFLs top lineman (2008 and 2009), the six-foot-four, 296-pound Flory helped Montreal to Grey Cup victories in 2002, 2009 and 2010. "When people talk about how I was able to play for so long it was because of people like Scott that took pride in protecting the quarterback," said former Alouettes quarterback Anthony Calvillo, who retired in January as pro footballs all-time passing leader with 79,816 yards. "They didnt get a lot of press, a lot of accolades, but in that locker-room when I could walk away from a game with not getting hit you could see a big smile on their face and they took a lot of pride in that, so they were able to do that for many, many years and that allowed me to play for a lot of years." Montreal selected Flory in the third round, 15th overall, in the 1998 CFL draft out of the University of Saskatchewan. He attended training camp before returning to the Huskies, helping them win the Vanier Cup that season. Alouettes tackle Josh Bourke acknowledged that losing both Calvillo and Flory to retirement will leave a leadership void in Montreal that needs to be filled. "It just means that were going to be missing two great leaders on our team, two great men," Bourke said. "Ive played a lot of football with Scott. Ive played a lot of games with him, pretty much every start Ive made in this league hes been on the field with me so Ive learned a lot the last seven years from him, how to be a man, most importantly, but how to be a great teammate, how to prepare, how to be a professional. "Guys like myself and other guys coming up the ranks, were the ones that have to kind of take over now but its going to be hard because hes been such a great leader for so long."
