Ichiro scores 1,000th run of MLB career
Mariners star is eighth-fastest active player to reach feat
SEATTLE -- Ichiro Suzuki is mostly known for his prowess at the plate, but he crosses it a lot, too.
The Hits Man scored in the fifth inning to tie the Mariners and Angels at 1 and notch the 1,000th run of his Major League career. He's third in Seattle history in that category, and he's the eighth-fastest active player to accomplish the milestone, doing so in 1,481 games.
After scoring, Ichiro received a standing ovation from the crowd of 31,548 at Safeco Field. As fans chanted his name, he came out to the top step of the dugout and tipped his cap.
His run total since 2001 is fifth in the Major Leagues behind Albert Pujols, Alex Rodriguez, Johnny Damon and Derek Jeter. He leads the Mariners with 27 this season.
