Miguel Cabrera could be buckling under the “triple crown” pressure going 3-for-12 with one home run and three RBIs this weekend. Cabrera’s weak numbers were still good enough to tie Josh Hamilton and his blurred vision in home runs at 42.
Cabrera leads the American League in batting average (.331) and RBIs (133). He has 42 home-runs, tied with Josh Hamilton for league lead. Major League Baseball has not had a triple crown winner since Carl Yastrzemski of the Boston Red Sox in 1967 (.326 batting average, 44 HRs, 121 RBIs).
