In the second game of a double set, the Venezuelan Miguel Cabrera (Miggy), emblem of the Detroit Tigers, left behind the hitting record of the immortal Craig Biggio.
With his unstoppable 3.061 for life in the Major Leagues (MLB, for its acronym in English), Miggy was alone in the 25th position of players with the most singles in the "Big Show", according to official data.

In the afternoon, the pride of La Pedrera, Aragua state, managed to match the former Houston Astros player, after hitting an RBI single through the middle of the field. That connection also helped him match Manny Ramirez's RBI mark (1.831).
The next big challenge
After beating San Rice, Roberto Clemente, Al Kaline, Wade Boggs, Rafael Palmeiro, Lou Brock, Rod Carew, Rickey Henderson and, now, Biggio, "El Tigre Mayor" has as his next goal the undisputed 3.089 given by the skilled Japanese Ichiro Suzuki.
