Every hit by Miguel Cabrera seems destined to write a chapter in MLB history, and this Thursday against the Oakland Athletics he tied Barry Bonds for double 601 of his career.
‘Miggy’ tied the scoreboard at 3 runs in the bottom of the sixth inning with his fourth double of the season, which writes his name among the players who have hit the most two-base hits in the history of the big league. In fact, Cabrera climbed to 17th place on the all-time list of tubeyes.

The designated hitter for the Detroit Tigers entered the game batting .268 with a home run and 9 RBIs. Last weekend, the Venezuelan reached 600 doubles in the Major Leagues and joined Hank Aaron and Dominican legend Albert Pujols as the only players in history with 3,000 hits, 500 home runs and 600 doubles.
Cabrera is also the 33rd player in the 3,000 hits club, the seventh with that number of hits and 500 home runs, and just the third with 3,000 hits, 500 home runs and showing at least a .300 average (.310).
