Miguel Cabrera leaves Wade Boggs behind

The pride of La Pedrera is seven singles away from equaling Palmeiro's record

The Venezuelan Miguel Cabrera, emblem of the Detroit Tigers, hit his 3.011th career single in the Major Leagues (MLB) on Wednesday night.

With his 24 hits of 2022, Miggy left behind the mark of the legendary Wade Boggs, a member of the Hall of Fame, who in 18 years in the MLB shook 3.010 hits.

At the bottom of the 4th. entrance, "El Tigre Mayor" gave this new historic single to center field off Zach Logue, left-handed starter for the Oakland Athletics.

Later, Cabrera, 39, had two more hits to reach 3.013.

The pride of La Pedrera, Aragua state, will have as its next challenge the 3.020 hits of Cuban Rafael Palmeiro.

This season, Miguel Cabrera has already reached two important milestones in his career: 3.000 hits and 600 doubles.

Despite another fruitful day for the "Boy in the movie", a nickname given to him by the remembered narrator Humberto "Beto" Perdomo, the Tigers fell again by the whitewashing route (9 to 0) against the Athletics.
