DETROIT -- Asdrubal Cabrera lost three RBIs Sunday morning, almost 24 hours after picking them up in a Saturday afternoon game.

In the fifth inning of Detroit's 9-7 win over the Cleveland Indians, Cabrera hit a deep fly ball to left with the bases loaded. Ryan Raburn fell down when turning to chase the ball, got up and ran the ball down at the warning track, only to see it bounce off his glove. All three runners scored.

Official scorer Ron Kleinfelter originally ruled the play a double, and declined to alter the call after the game, despite pressure from the Tigers. However, an announcement was made during the first inning of Sunday's series finale that the play had been changed to an error.

Tigers starter Zach Miner was the beneficiary, as all five runs he allowed in the inning are now unearned.
