Cabrera continued a season of sheer dominance in May, hitting .379 (44-for-116) with nine doubles, 12 home runs, 33 RBI, 23 runs scored and 15 walks in 28 games. At times it looked as if no one would ever get him out.
Brown, meanwhile, had his coming out party, hitting .303 (33-for-109) with 12 homers and 25 driven in, slugging .688. He also became the first player in Major League history to hit at least 10 home runs in a calendar month without a walk. Which, hello National League pitchers, perhaps you should see if he can handle stuff outside the zone for a while?
Congrats to Cabrera and Brown.
