NEW YORK (AP) — Ichiro Suzuki has singled for his 4,000th career hit between Japan and the major leagues.

The 39-year-old Suzuki slashed a line drive the opposite way to left field off Toronto's R.A. Dickey in the first inning Wednesday night for the milestone hit.

He has 2,722 hits in a 13-year major league career and amassed 1,278 hits in nine seasons with Orix of Japan's Pacific League.
