Ichiro Suzuki reached a milestone recording his 4,000th career hit in Wednesday nights game against Toronto.

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.

The 39-year-old collected a single off of R.A. Dickey in the first inning which elicited the Yankees bench to clear.

Pete Rose with 4,256 hits and Ty Cobb with 4,191 are the only two players that have reached the number solely in the major leagues.
