Ichiro ties Pete Rose’s record for most 200-hit seasons

Seattle Mariners outfielder Ichiro Suzuki extended his major league record for consecutive 200-hit seasons to 10 after going 2-for-5 against the Toronto Blue Jays on Thursday.

Ichiro, who came into the game with 198 hits, also tied Pete Rose for the most career 200-hit seasons after hitting a double down the left field line in the third inning and singling up the middle in the fifth.

The 10-time All-Star began the streak in his rookie year in the major leagues in 2001. He said he is comfortable with the change in the way he has been treated by the media and people surrounding him in the process.
