Miguel Cabrera pulls off hidden-ball trick in Tigers win over Twins

TIGERS 3, TWINS 0

Detroit first baseman Miguel Cabrera slyly pulled off the hidden-ball trick, trapping Ehire Adrianza in the third inning. Tyson Ross made a pickoff throw that sent Adrianza diving into the bag, and Cabrera pretended to toss the ball back to the mound. But he kept it and when Adrianza stood up and stepped off the base to shake away the dust, Cabrera tagged him.

The Twins' first base coach, by the way, was Toby Gardenhire -- son of Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire. Toby Gardenhire is a minor league manager in Minnesota's system.

Ross pitched four innings and struck out five. JaCoby Jones homered and Grayson Greiner had two hits.
