Congratulations to Miguel Cabrera of the Tigers. Sunday, his 6th inning blast off Blue Jays lefthander Steven Matz made him the 28th player -- and first native of Venezuela -- to reach 500 career home runs. With six weeks to go in the season, this four-time batting champ also got a chance to claim another milestone in 2021 -- he's 45 hits shy of 3000.

Do you think the Phillies missed Rhys Hoskins during their recent slump? The slugging 1st baseman returned Sunday from a groin strain and smacked two homers in a 7-4 victory over the Padres -- that gave them a badly needed series win. Still, the recent slump left them behind five games behind the pace-setting Braves.

Donovan Solano, a valuable bench player for the Giants the last few seasons, delivered a two-run pinch homer that made the difference in Sunday's win. Trailing the A's 1-0, his two-out blast off Lou Trivino also helped the Giants maintain the best record in baseball.

Finally... a Throwback from 2011:

These days, he's a popular podcaster and subject of a well-received documentary. 10 years ago, CC Sabathia was the Yankees ace. He's warming up in the bullpen just before taking the mound against the Texas Rangers.
