Cabrera won the first Triple Crown since 1967. He became the 15th player to win it, and it's just the 17th time it's been won in history.

Miguel Cabrera has won the Triple Crown.

Cabrera went 0-for-2 on Wednesday, but his effort during the first 161 games of the year was enough to clinch baseball's first batting Triple Crown since 1967.

Cabrera finished the regular season with a .330 batting average, 44 home runs and 139 RBI.

Angels outfielder Mike Trout went 2-for-3, finishing the season with a .326 average, good for second base.

Texas outfielder Josh Hamilton went 1-for-5 with no home runs and three RBI. He finished the season with 43 HR and 128 RBI. Curtis Granderson came from behind to tie Hamilton at 43 HR after a two homer game before being pulled in the eighth inning.

Cabera became the 15th player to win it, and it's just the 17th time it's been won in history.

I don't want to say Cabrera's Hall of Fame ticket has just been punched, but, well, if history is our guide, yep, that ought to do it.
