The epilogue to the Major League Baseball 2021 campaign is in its final stretch. The novenas look for their ticket to the playoff round and players go after the best brands, that is the case of two Creole sluggers.
Miguel Cabrera and Salvador Pérez have had a spectacular harvest of great connections. With paper and pencil in hand, they have crossed out and written personal marks within the history of the best baseball in the world.
Cabrera with the Detroit Tigers conquered and passed several lines in his career within the majors. With 502 homers, 1,505 runs scored, 1,804 RBIs, 9,605 at-bats, the ‘Tigre Mayor’ enlarges his digits.
There are seven games left to put an end to the regular round and Maracay’s team has 2,984 hits, three of San Rice’s 2,987, ranked 33rd all-time among the players with the most hits.
It is also placed at 16 of the mythical figure of 3,000 hits (Roberto Clemente box 32 finished his career with that amount). He is on the verge of candy to round his account to 1,200 walks (1,199) and has 596 doubles to just four of the 600. Another record is in swindling, he has 39 and one steal in the last six seasons.
Savior for the crown
While on the side of the Kansas City Royals, their receiver, the Creole Salvador Pérez is in a dream year with the tree. His offense is the main pillar of the team. Leader in home runs (46) and RBIs to the plate (115).
He has already become the catcher with the most homers in a year and is after two home-hitting records. The first is to surpass Jorge Soler (48) as the Royals player with the most hits in a season and reach 200 for life.
While the second is to become the Venezuelan with the most home runs in a year in Major League baseball. For that, he must exceed the 49 connected in 2019 by Eugenio Suárez with the Cincinnati Reds.
The countdown begins, seven challenges to the end of the season and Cabrera and Pérez hope to light their bats before completing the 2021 regular round.
