Miguel Cabrera passed two superstars with a homer Saturday night, and JaCoby Jones hit a two-run shot in the ninth off Raisel Iglesias, rallying the Detroit Tigers to a 6-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Jones snapped a 4-4 tie with his homer into the Reds’ bullpen in center field off Raisel Iglesias (0-1), who set a Reds record for a reliever with 12 losses last year.

Cabrera salvaged his four-strikeout day with a seventh-inning, two-run home run that lifted Detroit to a brief 4-3 lead and broke a tie with Adrian Beltre for 30th place on the career home run list.

Cabrera now has 478. Hall-of-Famer Lou Gehrig and Fred McGriff are tied for 28th with 493 each.

The two RBIs boosted Cabrera past Hall-of-Famer Cal Ripken Jr. and into 25th place on the career RBI list with 1,696. He needs three to tie another Hall-of-Fame inductee, Jim Thome.

Reds starter Luis Castillo reached double figures in strikeouts for the 10th time in his four-year career, fanning 10, including Cabrera swinging all three times in three appearances. The 2019 All-Star allowed six hits and one run with one walk in six innings.

All three runs allowed by Detroit starter Ivn Nova came on home runs, Joey Vottos second in two days in the first inning and Freddy Galvis two-run shot in the second. Nova allowed just one other hit in five innings.

Buck Farmer (1-0) pitched a scoreless eighth to get the win. Joe Jimnez gave up a walk in the ninth while getting his first save.


Tigers: Right fielder Cameron Maybin left the game after seven innings with a cramp.

Reds: The Reds placed infielder Matt Davidson on the 10-day injured list after he tested positive for COVID-19 and put catcher Tucker Barnhart on the three-day paternity list. Outfielder Aristides Aquino and right-hander Tejay Antone were recalled.


Tigers: RHP Spencer Turnbull (3-17 in 2019) makes his first career start against the Reds.

Reds: RHP Trevor Bauer (combined 11-13 in 2019 with Cleveland and Cincinnati) makes his 20th career start against Detroit. He is 11-9 in his career against the Tigers.
