Tigers' Cabrera ruptures biceps, done for season

DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera ruptured his left biceps tendon Tuesday night, an injury that will sideline the Detroit slugger for the rest of the season, and the Tigers lost 6-4 to the Minnesota Twins.

The two-time AL MVP will have surgery this week, the Tigers said. Cabrera, playing his 12th game since missing 26 with a hamstring strain, exited in the third inning and underwent an MRI during the game.

Cabrera missed three games earlier this season with spasms in his left biceps.

Ehire Adrianza hit his first career grand slam to help Minnesota rally.

The Twins trailed 2-1 going into the seventh inning, but Tigers starter Blaine Hardy left after allowing a leadoff single to Eduardo Escobar.

Louis Coleman (3-1) only threw nine strikes in a 23-pitch outing, walking two batters to load the bases with two outs. Tigers Manager Ron Gardenhire brought in Warwick Saupold, who went to a 3-1 count on Adrianza before throwing a fastball that ended up in the right-field stands.

The Tigers made it 5-4 with two runs in the seventh. With runners on second and third with two outs, JaCoby Jones beat out an infield single and Escobar's throw sailed past first baseman Logan Morrison for Minnesota's second throwing error of the inning.

Miguel Sano gave the Twins a 6-4 lead with an RBI single in the eighth.

Ryan Pressly (1-1) got the victory with a scoreless inning of relief. Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth for his 14th save.

RED SOX 6, ORIOLES 4 Home runs by Rafael Devers and Andrew Benintendi (Arkansas Razorbacks) helped Eduardo Rodriguez win his fifth consecutive start, and the Boston Red Sox extended Baltimore's losing streak to six games. Rodriguez (8-1) gave up 2 runs and 8 hits over 5 2/3 innings

RAYS 4, BLUE JAYS 1 Wilson Ramos homered, and six Tampa Bay relievers combined for a five-hitter for the host Rays. Austin Pruitt (2-3) pitched 2 2/3 innings for the victory, and Sergio Romo worked the ninth for his second save.
