One swing changed the Boston scouting report. Cabrera showed he is healthy enough now to turn on a 94-mph fastball and do damage. He had not had an extra base hit since Sept. 17. The home run was the first one he pulled to leftfield since Aug. 25. The Tigers are a different team if Cabrera is a longball threat.

Strikeout artists like Tigers ace Justin Verlander have been dominating the postseason.
