Detroit slugger Miguel Cabrera had a pretty good week -- at the Twins' expense.

On Tuesday, he drove in his 100th run of the season, his fifth consecutive 100-RBI season.

On Wednesday, he reached the 30-homer plateau for the sixth consecutive year -- the past five with Detroit -- with an impressive opposite-field drive off Cole De Vries. It was so impressive that Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said, "He hit that ball like a lefthander hits it."

The last Tigers player to drive in 100 runs in five consecutive seasons was Charlie Gehringer, from 1932 to '36. And Cabrera broke a tie with Hank Greenberg and Cecil Fielder for the Tigers' record for consecutive 30-homer seasons.

"Detroit has seen a lot of great players," Cabrera said. "The great Al Kaline. Ty Cobb. They have seen a lot of Hall of Famers. Those guys did unbelievable things."

One bright spot for the Indians in the second half has been reliever Cody Allen, a 23rd-round draft pick in 2011 who pitched 121/3 scoreless innings after being called up from Class AAA Columbus. That's the longest debut run by a Cleveland reliever since 1984.

Tim Collins has set a Royals season record for strikeouts by a lefthanded reliever (he had 80 entering the weekend). He's only 22, so get used to a lot of Collins-Joe Mauer late-inning matchups.
