Cabrera connected for a solo homer in the first inning, breaking a tie with Andres Galarraga for the most by a Venezuelan-born player.

The game at Busch Stadium was stopped in the bottom of the first because of rain. The Tigers and Cardinals waited out an hour and 20-minute rain delay before resuming.

Cabrera's 10th homer of the season came against Tyler Lyons and was his fourth in three days.

The home run would be his 262nd with the Tigers, tying Willie Horton for fourth on the franchise list.

Kris Bryant Hits 1st Major League Home Run

Chicago Cubs/MLB(MILWAUKEE) -- Chicago Cubs rookie third baseman Kris Bryant hit his first career major league home run in the third inning of the team's 12-4 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night.

Bryant had gone 20 games and 73 to begin his major league career. It was the Cubs' first three-run home run this season.

"Get the first one out of the way. Kind of been a while, but I did it," Bryant said afterwards. "It was a cool feeling, but it would be nice to get a win out of it. It will still be a day I'll remember."

As Bryant rounded the bases, the entire Cubs team ran into the clubhouse so when he arrived back it was empty.

"It's pretty funny that they all came in here [the clubhouse] and when I come back to the dugout nobody was in the dugout, so that was pretty funny," Bryant said. "We had a good time with it. They were waiting by the door. It was kind of like a mosh pit, punching me and all that kind of stuff."

The 20 games without a home run was the longest streak in Bryant's collegiate or professional career.

Red Sox Set to Hire Carl Willis as Pitching Coach

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(BOSTON) -- Former Cleveland Indians pitching coach Carl Willis, is set to join Boston and become the Red Sox new pitching coach.

Willis is currently serving as the Indians' Triple-A pitching coach for the Columbus (Ohio) Clippers, however, he informed the Clippers he had taken the Red Sox job after their game Friday night, according to the Columbus Dispatch.

"They're to announce it for me [Saturday]," Willis said. "The deal was I didn't want to leave until the Indians could arrange for someone to get here, and they're prepared to get through the weekend without somebody in Boston.  So getting there after their game Saturday, we play Sunday and fly to Oakland.  So that will be a good five-hour trip that I can get brought up to speed on everything that's going on there."

Willis was the Indians' pitching coach from 2003-09 and he served as the pitching coach for the Seattle Mariners from 2010-13.  As a pitching coach, Willis had three Cy Young Award winners on his staffs: CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee in Cleveland and Felix Hernandez in Seattle.

David Price Expected to Make Next Start Despite Injury

Brian D. Kersey/Getty Images(DETROIT) -- Tigers ace David Price is expected to make his next scheduled start despite suffering a mild hamstring injury in Friday's game against the Royals.

The Tigers announced Price's hamstring injury on Saturday but said they would wait until next week before determining whether or not he would make his next start.

However, Price told reporters he feels "fine" and he anticipates making his next scheduled start Thursday against the Minnesota Twins.

Price suffered the injury on a fluke play in Friday night's victory over Kansas City when he stepped on a bat.

Strasburg Exits Game with Shoulder Issue

Norm Hall/Getty Images(WASHINGTON D.C.) -- Washington Nationals right-hander Stephen Strasburg left Tuesday's game against the Miami Marlins after pitching just three innings; the Nats ended up losing 2-1.

"He's got a little issue under his shoulder blade. Had it last start," Nationals manager Matt Williams said. "Could be an alignment issue, but as he finishes pitches, it grabs him every once in a while. Tonight it got a little bit worse. So we'll have to have the chiropractor look at him."

In the second inning, Strasburg winced after throwing a pitch and was visited by the team trainer, pitching coach Steve McCatty, and Williams. The right-hander stayed in the game, but not for long.

Strasburg allowed two baserunners in the third before retiring Adeiny Hechavarria to end the inning.

"It's something that's just been lingering, and I just felt it more and more," Strasburg said. "I felt like it was something that I felt I could have gone through it, but at this point in the season you just want to get it right and not alter your mechanics too much."

Strasburg (2-3) left for a pinch hitter after allowing two runs and throwing 64 pitches in his shortest outing since a two-inning stint against Miami on Aug. 28, 2013.

Orioles Top White Sox with No Fans in Attendance

iStock/Thinkstock(BALTIMORE) -- 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 as the Baltimore Orioles beat the Chicago White Sox, 8-2.

The gates at Camden Yards were locked because of concern for fan safety following recent rioting in Baltimore.

Both teams lined up for the national anthem, music played in between innings and the seventh-inning stretch was noted with the traditional John Denver song.

The Orioles and White Sox played their game in two hours and three minutes. Baltimore won its third straight game.

Dodgers put Yasiel Puig on DL with Hamstring Injury

Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- The Los Angeles Dodgers put Yasiel Puig on the 15-day disabled list due to a tight left hamstring before Sunday's game at Petco Park, marking the first time the outfielder has been on the DL in his career.

Puig aggravated the injury trying to beat out a groundball to third base Friday night. He first injured his hamstring April 13 and had been in and out of the lineup since then. Puig tried testing the injury by running on the field and hitting in the indoor batting cage.

"I think he's disappointed, because he thinks he's going to be ready to play in four or five days," Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said. "That's the tough part. Being ready to play and being 100 percent are different. Yasiel plays at one speed. I think we see that. There's no real putting the governor on him. He's just going to play at that speed. It's tough for him to say, 'Hey, you've got to back off.' That's where you've got to protect him from himself."

Puig was batting .279 with two home runs on the young season.
