Detroit Tigers third-baseman Miguel Cabrera became the first player in 45 years to win a Triple Crown last night as the Tigers beat the Royals 1-0.

Cabrera became just the 15th player to win baseball’s Triple Crown. He joins a short list filled by players – Lou Gehrig, Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle – who are in the Hall of Fame.

According to ESPN, Cabrera finished the season with a .330 batting average, 139 RBI’s and 44 home runs. Cabrera, wasn’t assured of the Triple Crown until after former teammate and current Yankee Curtis Granderson finished his night. Granderson had homered twice in the Yankees game against the Red Sox and ended up tied with the Rangers’ Josh Hamilton for second in home runs with 43.

Cabrera is the first Triple Crown winner in the majors since Boston’s Carl Yastrzemski did it in 1967.
