Alex Cabrera (42) set a new Venezuelan Winter League home run record by hitting his twenty-first home run of the season on Sunday.  From MLB.com's Andrew Simon:

... Cabrera broke the league's 33-year-old record for most home runs in a season on Sunday in his 57th game, smacking No. 21 for Tiburones de La Guaira in their 4-3 win over Caribes de Anzoategui. The grand slam to left field broke former big league catcher Bo Diaz's 1980 mark, according to the Associated Press.

... With four games left on La Guaira's regular-season schedule, Cabrera is on pace to become the league's first Triple Crown winner. He is leading the league in homers with a .396 batting average and 58 RBIs.
