Friday night’s game between the Detroit Tigers and the Colorado Rockies was officially postponed due to rain. The suspension prevented Miguel Cabrera from seeking his 3,000th hit in the MLB.
Now, the Bengalis will play a doubleheader against the visiting Denver, this Saturday at Comerica Park. The first match will begin at 1:10 pm ET and the second match will begin at &:40 pm.
The closing duel of the Saturday special day is the one that has been rescheduled due to bad weather in Detroit, the home of the squad to which “Miggy” belongs.
The 39-year-old Venezuelan accumulates 2,999 hits until this Friday. He is on track to become the seventh player in major league history to compile 3,000 hits and 500 home runs.
The Tigers play in the Central Division of the American League. They have a record of 5 wins and 7 losses to rank fourth in the zone.
As the game is going to be played at the headquarters of his team, the Venezuelan Cabrera asked that they play the song “Alma Llanera” when he hits the 3,000th hit. This piece is considered “the second national anthem of Venezuela” and the player wants it to sound “so they know where I come from.”
