Miggy sets postseason record for reaching base

DETROIT -- Miguel Cabrera's health has left him limited at the plate for a while. Even at less than full strength, however, he has reached a postseason record.

With his sixth-inning single against A's starter Dan Straily in Game 4 of the American League Division Series on Tuesday, Cabrera reached base safely in his 28th consecutive postseason game, pushing him past the previous postseason record set by Philadelphia's Chase Utley from 2007-2009.

Cabrera has reached base safely in every postseason game he has played as a Tiger. Before that, he had a 15-game streak with the then-Florida Marlins in 2003.

The only two playoff games in which Cabrera has not reached base are his first, Game 1 of the 2003 NL Division Series against San Francisco, and his last that year, Game 6 of the World Series at Yankee Stadium.
