With a seventh-inning single Sunday against the San Francisco Giants, Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers recorded RBI No. 100 on the season, reaching this mark for the 11th consecutive year.

Cabrera's first season reaching triple-digit RBI numbers came back in 2004 as a member of the Florida Marlins. He racked up steady totals with that franchise following his rookie season, accumulating 112, 116, 114 and 119 RBI before departing for Detroit. 

It was during his time in the Motor City that Cabrera was truly able to turn things up from a power standpoint, however. His 2008 debut season with the Tigers was his second of seven straight 30-homer seasons, and the slugger was able to post a .981 OPS with the team.

Miggy famously recorded the first MLB Triple Crown since 1967 back in 2011, when he lead the American League in home runs (44), RBI (139) and batting average (.330) in his first of two straight AL MVP campaigns.

Although the streak of 30-homer seasons is likely coming to an end, Cabrera continues to be a strong run-producer and is on track to finish with a .300-plus batting average for the ninth time in the last 10 seasons. 

On top of the Triple Crown, Cabrera will most likely be remembered for his RBI prowess, as those numbers are poised to carve his name into the MLB record books. 

Per Baseball Almanac, Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees has the most career 100-RBI seasons (14), with 13 of them coming consecutively. His streak of 13 straight is tied with Jimmie Foxx and Lou Gehrig for the most in MLB history.

At the age of 31 and under contract through the 2025 season, Cabrera seemingly has a reasonable chance of setting the all-time marks in both consecutive and total 100-RBI campaigns.
