Miguel Cabrera hit two of Detroit's four home runs, no-doubt drives that gave the star slugger a pair of satisfying jogs around the bases. James McCann had to hustle for his. With a variety of sources and styles, the Tigers produced a powerful rally for a 10-7 victory Wednesday to take the series from the Minnesota Twins. Aaron Thompson relieved with two out and one on, when McCann's deep fly eluded center fielder Jordan Schafer and ricocheted sharply along the warning track.

Orioles top White Sox 8-2 at empty Camden Yards (Yahoo Sports)

Yahoo - Wed, 2015-04-29 22:19

The cheers from the small group of Orioles fans gathered outside the locked gates beyond center field echoed throughout an empty Camden Yards every time the home team scored a run. In what was believed to be the first major league game played without fans in attendance, Chris Davis hit a three-run homer in a six-run first inning Wednesday and the Baltimore Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox 8-2. ''It was kind of like instructional league, Gulf Coast League, Arizona League,'' Orioles manager Buck Showalter said of the lack of fans. The game was closed to fans out of concern for their safety following recent rioting in Baltimore after Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man, died in police custody.

The music in the Milwaukee Brewers' clubhouse was cranked so loud that it was hard to hear anything else. ''Don't turn it down!'' pitcher Matt Garza said. ''I can talk loud!'' With Ryan Braun finally breaking out of his slump, the Brewers hope they've finally put all of their numb, postgame silence in the past. Braun hit his fourth career grand slam and a solo homer Wednesday, powering the Brewers to an 8-3 victory over the Cincinnati Reds that provided a one-day respite from their awful start.

The timing worked for baseball, not so much for Baltimore. It was an unusual move by Major League Baseball, which usually errs on the side of caution in the wake of tragedy.
