BALTIMORE (AP) - Only Chris Davis stands between Miguel Cabrera and baseball history.
As he heads toward the conclusion of another sensational season with the Detroit Tigers, Cabrera has a decent shot at becoming the first major league player to win the Triple Crown in successive seasons.
Entering play Monday, Cabrera comfortably led the AL with a .356 batting average, 28 points higher than runner-up Mike Trout. His 126 RBIs were best in the league, too, eight better than Davis.
In home runs, though, Davis held a 46-42 advantage. And if the Baltimore Orioles slugger can make that lead stand up, then Cabrera's bid for a repeat performance will be denied.
