Detroit Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera hit a "lucky" home run Wednesday night with an assist from a Cleveland Indians player.

The Venezuelan hit his 13th home run of the season when his long fly ball bounced off the glove of Cleveland Indians center fielder Michael Bourn and ended up dropping in the stands over the wall, Yahoo! sports reported.

The Tigers scored a two-run home run with Cabrera's ball. The Tigers ended up winning Wednesday's three-hour-and-33-minute-long game 11-9.

Speaking after the game, the Venezuelan player admitted he got lucky.

"Lucky home run," he said. "I take it, especially with a win. Long game."
