Last Night Miguel Cabrera had 5 hits and 6 RBI. He is the 45th player since 1956 to do this.
What intrigues me are the dates for the last 4 times that this has been accomplished.
Cabrera accomplished his feat on July 21, 2008.
Before him Willie Harris did it on July 21, 2007.
Before that Andruw Jones did it on July 18, 2006.
Before that Craig Monroe did it on July 22, 2005.
In 4 consecutive years the feat has been accomplished on almost the same date and in the last 3 of those years (so far) it wasn't done on any other date.
Some of you will tell me that I'm nuts, but I found this intriguing.
