Triple crown repeat a possibility for Miggy

Triple crown repeat a possibility for Miggy


NEW YORK -- Talk about a Miguel Cabrera repeat of his Triple Crown was dead a week ago. His recent tear at the plate has made it look like a possibility again, though he has some work to do.

Cabrera's solo homer Saturday briefly moved him alone atop the Major League RBI leaders before Chris Davis hit a solo homer later to move back into a tie. Both entered Sunday with 109.

Cabrera's .363 average entering Sunday ranked 33 points above any other qualifying hitter in the American League. His 35 home runs, meanwhile, are still seven behind Davis' total.

All of those numbers are outpacing his numbers from last year.
