Triple Crown update: Miguel Cabrera four home runs away
Let's check in on where Miguel Cabrera stands in his pursuit to become the first-ever back-to-back Triple Crown winner.
This baseball must have wronged Miguel Cabrera in some way, because this is some serious punishment being doled out:
That was the 42nd homer of the season for the Tigers' superstar, bringing him to within four homers of Chris Davis for the major-league lead. With that in mind, let's check out the triple crown standings right now.
Menacing lead, Miggy.
1. Davis, 46
2. Cabrera, 42
3. Encarnacion, 33
So it's a two-horse race.
Runs Batted In
If not for Davis, it would be laughable.
As a reminder, Cabrera won the triple crown last season in the American League and no one has ever done so in back-to-back seasons. Hall of Famers Rogers Hornsby and Ted Williams each won the triple crown twice, but neither did it in consecutive seasons.
