The slugging first baseman looked gimpy as he trotted to first on a sixth-inning single, and he was lifted immediately after that for a pinch runner. Cabrera also doubled and scored in the fourth.
Cabrera is hitting .326 with 11 homers and 51 RBIs. He was bothered last year by shin and groin injuries, and he had muscle repair surgery in the offseason.
Cabrera has played in all 59 of Detroit's games this year.
