Venezuelan Miguel Cabrera Surpasses Tony Gwynn In The List Of Most Hits In Major League History [Videos] | The USA Print – THE USA PRINT

The Venezuelan Miguel Cabrera continues to grow his legend in Major League Baseball after this Tuesday surpassed the legendary Tony Gwynn on the list of hitters with the most hits of all time, this in the victory of his team the Detroit Tigers 6-0 over the Minnesota Twins.

Cabrera hit a single in the fourth inning that helped him drive in a run and at the same time tie Gwynn for 20th place in history, but the Venezuelan was not satisfied with that and wanted to continue climbing the ranks, something he achieved in the eighth inning when he hit another hit to reach 3,142, passing the Hall of Famer and tying Robin Yount for 19th.

The designated hitter from Detroit is living his last season in the Major Leagues, one in which he himself has said that he is not focused on records but on enjoying it to the fullest and a sample of them is the fact that he does not play every day, in addition to the low average of .255 and OPS of .661, numbers that are far from those he has exhibited throughout his career.

And it is that being above 3,000 hits, 500 home runs, 1,800 RBIs, 1,500 runs scored and with a lifetime batting average of over .300, is a clear indication that He has the path made to reach the Baseball Hall of Fame, so each achievement or record that he breaks is only an added value to what seems to be an imminent immortality.

To this we can add the Triple Crown, 7 Silver Sluggers, 4 Batting Championships, 12 All-Star Game invites, 2 times MVP of the American League and the World Series won in 2003 with the then Florida Marlins.

Eduardo Rodríguez shone on the mound

In this meeting, Eduardo Rodríguez, also from Venezuela, shone from the mound, throwing seven scoreless innings allowing just four hits, walking three and striking out five to pick up the win and leave his mark at 8-5 this season.
