The Venezuelan Miguel Cabrera (Miggy), emblem of the Detroit Tigers, hit his 3.054th career hit in the Major Leagues (MLB) this Sunday to surpass the mark of Panamanian Rod Carew.
After missing three at-bats, Miggy's customary single to right field came in the top of the ninth against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
According to official MLB data, the pride of La Pedrera, Aragua state, is alone in the 27th position of players with the most hits in the "Big Show".
Now, the challenge of "El Tigre Mayor" will be overcome Ricky Henderson, who shot 3.055 hits in a 25-year career, and then set his sights on Craig Biggio (3.060).
According to the projections of Baseball Reference, the Venezuelan will finish the campaign with 3.074 hits.
Despite the good news for another Miggy milestone, the Tigers fell again and added their 44th loss of the season.
