The Detroit Tigers dispatched up to 15 hits this Friday to overwhelm the Los Angeles Angels 11-2. Miguel Cabrera was infected by his colleagues and got a little closer to a new conquest.
Miggy, who has been affected by worsening knee pain, finished the day 4-2 to raise his personal record of 3.163 hits.
Now only three hits separate him from the Dominican Adrian Beltré, who occupies 16th place in the ranking of the most hitters in history. This with just over two weeks remaining until the regular season and Cabrera's MLB career conclude.

The Maracayero, who is retiring this year after 20 seasons, seeks to be the second Latino with the most hits in the history of the Major Leagues, only surpassed by Albert Pujols, who in 22 seasons collected 3.384 hits.
In the last seven games in which he has seen action, Cabrera has hit .320.
