Indians' Shane Bieber claims MLB pitching Triple Crown

Bieber is due to start Tuesday against the New York Yankees.All that's left for Bieber is to claim the American League Cy Young award, which seems like a shoo-in with Bieber's dominance across the major statistical categories. Before the results of Cy Young voting are announced, though, Bieber will look to lead the Indians through an expanded MLB postseason field. That begins with a Game 1 start at home against the New York Yankees on Tuesday night.

Five Burning Questions: Justin Bieber’s Chance the Rapper-Featuring ‘Holy’ Debuts at No. 3 on Hot 100
What does the song mean for Bieber’s future artistic direction and commercial success? And should Justin and Chance continue to work together? Billboard staffers answer these questions and more below. 1. “Holy” debuts at No. 3 on the Hot 100 — one spot lower than “Yummy” did at year’s start (and two spots lower than “Stuck With U”), but higher than any other track on Changes has reached. If you’re Bieb and Chance, how blessed are you feeling at this start, on a scale of 1-5 prayer hands emojis?Gab Ginsberg: Let’s go with a four. It’s a great achievement, but I’m sure they were hoping for a No.
Previously, some iconic acts came close, starting with, who peaked at Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 with five songs from one album: her breakthrough classic Control. The set’s first five singles claimed a peak at each top five position: “What Have You Done for Me Lately” (No. 4, May 1986); “Nasty” (No. 3, July 1986); “When I Think of You” (No. 1, two weeks, October 1986); “Control” (No. 5, January 1987); and “Let’s Wait Awhile” (No. 2, March 1987).
Jackson, meanwhile, retains the record for the quickest span of charting hits at Nos. 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, as those five songs peaked over a stretch of only 10 months. Comparatively, “10,000 Hours” debuted and peaked at No. 4 on the Oct. 19, 2019-dated Hot 100 and “Holy” debuts at No. 3 on the Oct. 3, 2020, list, making for a slightly longer span of 11 months and two weeks.
Get it Running! 1968 Plymouth Road Runner Found in an East Texas Field
Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling have fuzzy memories when it comes to Jessica Alba’s claim about bad behavior by the cast of Beverly Hills, 90210 in the show’s heyday. A promo for Garth and Spelling’s new podcast, 9021OMG, has been released ahead of its official Nov. 9 launch, and the women address the headline-making claim by Alba, who said when she appeared on two episodes of the hit Fox series in 1998, she was prohibited from making eye contact with the show’s stars.
Similarly, Herman’s Hermits first ran up a hefty six top five Hot 100 hits over a year, from March 1965 through March 1966: “Can’t You Hear My Heartbeat” (No. 2); “Silhouettes” (No. 5); “Mrs. Brown You’ve Got a Lovely Daughter” (No. 1, three weeks); “Wonderful World” (No. 4); “I’m Henry VIII, I Am” (No. 1, one week); and “Listen People” (No. 3).
Looking at all these acts, the feat speaks to the uncommon ability to send several songs into the Hot 100’s top five in a concentrated time, reflecting a robust appetite among fans for music from star artists, as well as, stemming from that popularity, a bit of chart luck in hitting on every number.
Of course, repeatedly reaching the chart’s ceiling in such a quick span is more laudable, andearned five Hot 100 No. 1s from his album Bad in 1987-88 even more quickly than Janet earned her five top five hits from Control, dominating with his five leaders over just nine months and two weeks.
