Miguel Cabrera's chase for Triple Crowns history — winning in back-to-back seasons — ended, but he's still involved in an interesting race to win his second consecutive American League MVP.

Cabrera finished the regular season as the American League batting champ, but Baltimore's Chris Davis was first in home runs and RBI. The Orioles first baseman took sole control of the RBI lead with a home run on Friday night.

POLL

  • Who should win the AL MVP?
    • Miguel Cabrera
    • Chris Davis
    • Mike Trout
    • Someone else

When September started, the Cabrera had a legitimate shot at becoming the first player in baseball's long history to win Triple Crowns in consecutive seasons, but a recent slump — helped by a nagging groin injury — threw a wrench into that plan.

Cabrera only hit one homer since Aug. 26. That slump allowed Davis to widen his home run lead and catch up to and pass Cabrera in RBI.

Last fall Cabrera won the first Triple Crown since Carl Yastrzemski did with the Red Sox in 1967.

Cabrera did win a third consecutive AL batting title this season. He finished .025 points ahead of runner-up Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels.

So will Cabrera, who won the Triple Crown last season by hitting .330 with 44 homers and 139 RBI, win back-to-back AL MVPs?

The majors' home run king Davis, who trailed by as many 12 RBI on Aug. 26, could win the vote, which is announced in early November. His 138 RBI and 53 homers are career-bests. Last season, he finished with 85 RBI and 33 homers.

The Angels' Trout, who finished runner-up to Cabrera in last year's MVP voting, could garner some votes, too.
