KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Miguel Cabrera hit a solo homer and a grand slam, doubling his season total to four home runs and leading Detroit over the Kansas City Royals 7-5 for the Tigers' eighth win in 11 games.

Cabrera homered in the second off Mike Minor, then overcame a 5-3 deficit in the seventh against Greg Holland with his sixth slam, the 491th home run of his big league career.

Cabrera, hampered by a left biceps earlier this season, raised his average from .198 to .204 with his 42nd multi-homer game. With 2,887 hits, he moved into 41st place.
