Say hey: A-Rod moves past Mays on RBI list
Alex Rodriguez’s infield roller eluded the grasp of Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera and was ruled a run-scoring single in the second inning on Sunday, marking Rodriguez’s 1,903rd career run batted in. A-Rod then added RBI No. 1,904 on a seventh-inning ground ball to shortstop, scoring Chris Stewart from third base underneath catcher Gerald Laird’s tag.
That surpasses Hall of Famer Willie Mays for sole possession of ninth place on baseball’s all-time RBIs list, according to MLB.com. Next up on the list is Eddie Murray, who drove in 1,917 runs.
Also on Sunday, Curtis Granderson worked a second-inning, bases-loaded walk from the Tigers’ Max Scherzer for his 500th career RBI.
