BALTIMORE (AP) — Renato Núñez homered in his return to Baltimore and the Detroit Tigers beat the Orioles 6-4 as Miguel Cabrera sat out while one homer shy of 500.

Cabrera can now go for that milestone at home after the Tigers finished their road trip with a three-game sweep in Baltimore. Victor Reyes and Robbie Grossman also homered for Detroit.

The Orioles have lost eight in a row. DJ Stewart homered twice for Baltimore.

Cabrera hit homer No. 499 the previous night.
