You would think after playing alongside him for five seasons, nothing that two-time reigning American League MVP Miguel Cabrera does on a baseball field would surprise teammate Austin Jackson. But following Miggy's clutch three-run home run that helped the Detroit Tigers beat the Baltimore Orioles 4-1 Tuesday night, Jackson's priceless reaction back in the dugout indicates otherwise.

Clipped in OKC
Meanwhile in the NBA, the Oklahoma City Thunder picked up a controversial 105-104 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 5 of the Western Conference semifinals to take a 3-2 series lead. Down 104-102 with eleven seconds left, OKC was awarded possession on a ball that appeared to have gone off Thunder guard Reggie Jackson.
Chris Paul was later called for a foul on a Russell Westbrook 3-point attempt. Westbrook made all three free throws and Oklahoma City escaped with the one-point victory after L.A. failed to get a shot off in its final possession.

Finally in hockey, Patrick Kane scored his fourth career playoff overtime goal as the Chicago Blackhawks eliminated the Minnesota Wild 2-1 in Game 6 to advance to the Western Conference Final.
