Baseball loves the round numbers and in honor of that, we salute Ichiro Suzuki who last night picked up hit #2500. Finding positives about Ichiro are getting harder to find, but last night in the Mariners 12-9 10-inning victory over the Diamondbacks, Ichiro had two doubles, two singles, a sac fly, two RBI and two runs scored.
Ichiro entered the game with a .282 on-base percentage and left the game boosting it to .290, to go along with his .265 batting average.
It was Ichiro’s 48th game with at least four-hits.
Here are the leaders in 4+ hit games since 1918:
