Happy Sunday! It’s time to catch up on anything you might’ve missed yesterday in today’s edition of MLB News You Should Know.


Miggy joins the 3,000-hit club


After days of fans sitting on the edge of their seats, Miguel Cabrera finally joins the exclusive 3,000-hit club. Cabrera also became the seventh player in major-league history to record 3,000 hits and 500 home runs. He achieved this milestone in his first at-bat with a single off Antonio Senzatela. A total of 37,566 fans flocked to Comerica Park to witness history being made to make it even sweeter. Congrats, Miggy!


The Cubs put up football numbers 


It’s baseball season, right? No, the Chicago Bears didn’t put up 21 points. The Cubs set a team record for largest shutout win against the Pirates. While the Cubs didn’t win the series, they showed the Pirates that they’re the real deal after all. The final score was 21-0.


Possible no-no and a walk off?


Six Rays pitchers (J.P. Feyereisen, Javy Guerra, Jeffrey Springs, Jason Adam, Ryan Thompson, and Andrew Kittredge) had combined to throw nine no-hit innings. Bobby Dalbec ended the no-hit bid with an RBI triple to lead off the 10th. Delbac eventually reached home to give the Red Sox a 2-0 lead.

But that pesky ghost runner rule was not in favor of the Red Sox and Trevor Story’s throwing error gave the Rays a run. Kevin Kiermaier stepped up to the plate and walked it off, giving the Rays a 3-2 win.


Yankees fans trash the Guardians


After the Gleyber Torres walk-off hit, Yankees fans threw trash at Guardians players in the outfield. Myles Straw got into it with fans, even climbing up the wall in defense. Per The Athletic, Oscar Mercado said he was almost hit in the face with a beer can and Trevor Stephan got pelted with an ice cream cone.

“I’m not talking, I’ll let the fans talk for me. Classless… Worst fan base on the planet,” Straw said postgame.

“There’s no place for throwing stuff on the field,” Aaron Boone said, according to MLB.com
