Miguel Cabrera and Albert Pujols both had four-hit games tonight. They're second and third in the majors in four-hit games since Pujols debuted in 2001. The leader? No surprise, it's Ichiro with 53. Cabrera has 44 and Pujols 42. Pujols' 584th home run also means he broke a tie with Mark McGwire for 10th on the all-time list.
