Tigers' 2014 Game 128: Miguel Cabrera's Double Plays

Miguel Cabrera hit into two double plays on Saturday night, the first of which killed off a rally, and the second of which possibly cost the Tigers an additional insurance run. In this case it appears that Cabrera made the right choice but got a bad result. Those pitches were in the general area where he has enjoyed the best success. Offered in evidence, a heat map taken from On this I have done my own 'eyeball Mark One' plot of where the balls would have been. I also include the two plots, again taken from, of the two plate appearances using PitchFX to show the balls relationship to the strike zone so you can decide if my locations are about right.
