In the meeting between Rays and Tigres, Mr. Miggy already thunders a pair of uncatchable, the first in section number 2 and the second in the fourth. These come to represent his 2,973 hits, remaining 14 of the immortal Sam Rice, located in the historical box 33.

He expands his own personal best of hits in a row to 9, leaving behind none other than Pete Rose and Paul Molitor with the longest string for a 38-year-old shoveller.

Additionally, the Tigres Mayor with his participation in this duel adds 2,570 games at the highest level of the ball, and now there are 3 games in which he must have a presence to tie the 48th place for life where the legendary Ozzie Smith is.

For more, the boy from Maracay accumulates 9,561 at-bats. He is 10 behind Sam Crawford, parked in 44th place in this ranking.

In the top of the fifth Tampa Bay takes the lead with a single by Joey Wendle that drives Kevin Kiermaier, however in the bottom of that same stretch Eric Haase with a home run is responsible for equalizing the actions.

During the next episode Jeimer Candelario puts the cats in the lead by hitting a double (40) RBI of 2 on the legs of Akil Baddoo and Robbie Grossman. For his part, Jonathan Schoop in the seventh of luck sends her to the stands with a full house.

The Venezuelan strength of the Bengals cannot be left behind and the next inning, Victor Reyes also homered, with 2 on board to extend Detroit’s lead to 10×4 with the final score.

The lauro goes to the account of José Cisnero (4-4, 3.06), in relief of 1 chapter in which he is punished with 3 clean scores, allows a pair of hits and gives up the same number of tickets. The defeated is Pete Fairbanks (3-6, 4.21) also as a reliever, who is scored 3 clean, 2 hits, 1 passport and 1 guillotine.
