Beltre passes Ichiro on MLB foreign-born hits list

ESPN Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre got his 3,090th career hit Wednesday night to pass Ichiro Suzuki for most by a foreign-born player in major league history. Beltre, a native of the Dominican Republic, reached the milestone with a fourth-inning double off Los Angeles Dodgers starter Kenta Maeda. The hit moved him into 22nd on the all-time list past Suzuki, his former Mariners teammate who put his playing career on hold earlier this season. Rod Carew (3,053), who was born in Panama, and Albert Pujols (3,030) of the Dominican Republic are next on the list of foreign-born players with the most hits. Beltre added two more hits later in the game, both singles, to raise his total to 3,092.
