Ichiro Suzuki recorded two hits on Wednesday to reach the 4,257 mark for his professional career, surpassing the total of Major League Baseball’s career hit leader Pete Rose.
Suzuki went into the game against the San Diego Padres one shy of Rose’s total, and opened the first inning with a leadoff infield hit.
