Timely and historic, that's how it has been Miguel Cabrera since the 2022 season started. Hunting brands left and right. This Thursday he did his thing again and tied the powerful Barry Bonds in doubles.
In the A's 5-3 win over the Tigers, Cabrera got his fourth double of the season and 601st career MLB double.
The line, connected in the sixth inning against Dominican Domingo Acevedo, completely washed outfielder Ramón Laureano and added a hairline to the Tigers' account to tie the actions 3-3.

Cabrera keeps climbing
Miggy is now tied with Bonds for 17th in the all-time rankings. And he already has three other legends in his sights:
- Cal Ripken (603)
- Paul Wagner (605)
- Paul Molitor (605)
In the extra-base department, in general, we talk about his connection 1121, it is one of the mark of Manny Ramírez, who is alone in 17th place on that list.
On the other hand, the connection represents his 3014th hit and leaves him only six behind the mark of Cuban Rafael Palmeiro, who ranks 28th in the ranking.
Overcoming it will make Cabrera the fourth-highest-hitting Latino in the Major Leagues, surpassed only by Rod Carew (3053), Adrian Beltre (3166) and Albert Pujols (3310 and counting).
