Miggy hit his 506th home run

"El Tigre Mayor" was three "homers" from Gary Sheffield's record

The Venezuelan Miguel Cabrera (Miggy), emblem of the Detroit Tigers, hit his 506th career home run in the Major Leagues (MLB) on Monday night.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, on a 1-1 count, Miggy punished a broken delivery by San Diego Padres reliever Steven Wilson to flick the ball out to left field.

According to Baseball Savant, the Venezuelan's fourth four-corner connection of 2022 clocked an exit speed of 102 miles per hour and traveled 373 feet.

Now, "El Tigre Mayor" was three "homers" from the record of Gary Sheffield, who occupies the 26th place for maximum home runs in MLB history.

Additionally, the pride of La Pedrera, Aragua state, reached 1.840 tows to break the tie with Ted Williams and place alone in the 15th position of historical tugboats, according to data from Baseball Reference.

Thanks to a great offensive display, the Tigers stayed with this match (12 to 4) to place their mark at 39-58.
