Ichiro Suzuki reaches 4,000-hit plateau

NEW YORK - Ichiro Suzuki slashed a single the opposite way with his unique swing for the 4,000th hit of a career split between Japan and the major leagues.

The 39-year-old Suzuki hit a liner off Toronto’s R.A. Dickey that bounced just beyond diving third baseman Brett Lawrie in the first inning Wednesday night for the milestone hit.

Suzuki broke a tie with Lou Gehrig when he got his 2,722nd major league hit in his 13th season.

The speedy outfielder amassed 1,278 hits in nine seasons with Orix of Japan’s Pacific League. AP
