Of the big three milestones in baseball: batting average, home runs, and RBI’s, the latter has the most direst correlation to winning. Tonight, Shane Victorino put his name atop of Hawaii’s all-time scoreboard.

After tying Mike Lum’s 50th state record of 431 RBI’s yesterday, it didn’t take Victorino long to stand alone atop the RBI throne. The Flyin’ Hawaiian barreled a single to left in the 4th, plating Jacoby Ellsbury and RBI number 432.

The total adds to the Maui native’s perch of home runs, doubles, triples, hits, and stolen bases for the union jack and stripes.

Victorino finished the night 2-4 with 2 RBI’s. The Red Sox defeated the Mariners 11-4.
