There we have it! Ichiro singles in the 5th to make it 10 consecutive years of 200+ hits. #Ichiro200
TORONTO -- Ichiro Suzuki stroked a fifth-inning single to center to collect his 200th hit Thursday, tying a Major League record by reaching the milestone for the 10th time in his career.
Ichiro is the first player to record 200 hits in 10 consecutive seasons to extend his own record.
The Mariners dugout, along with the fans at Rogers Centre gave the Japanese native a standing ovation. Following roughly 30 second of applause, Ichiro removed his cap and acknowledged the crowd. The ball, fielded by center-fielder Vernon Wells, was promptly retrieved by a Mariners staff member.
