Miguel Cabrera Makes History Against Mariano Rivera

Miguel Cabrera became the first player ever to homer in consecutive at-bats against Mariano Rivera this past weekend, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.Cabrera homered on Friday off Rivera, a two-run shot that tied the game at 4 in the 9th inning.  Cabrera did it again on Sunday, with Detroit down 4-2, hitting a solo shot off Mo.

The Yankees ironically won both games thanks to Brett Gardner walk-off hits (single and home run).  Rivera, even more ironically, has blown three straight saves for the first time in his career.

And even more ironically than both of those nutty stats, Miguel Cabrera homered off Mariano Rivera in consecutive at-bats for the first time ever.

Two Cooperstown-bound players.  It takes one to get hit by one.
