Ichiro Suzuki slapped a ball into shallow right field Saturday evening at Busch Stadium for the 4,192nd hit of his professional career — 1,278 in Japan and 2,914 in Major League Baseball …

4,192 hits is one more than Ty Cobb produced in his major league career, and it puts Ichiro within striking distance of MLB’s all-time hits king, Pete Rose, who tallied 4,256 hits during his 24-year career. This is all unofficial, of course, and probably a little silly. Nobody is counting the 427 hits Rose had as a minor leaguer.

WASHINGTON — Three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer left his start for the Nationals against the New York Mets after just 27 pitches Wednesday night due to a hamstring injury.

He was replaced in the top of the second by Erick Fedde.

Scherzer was not as sharp as usual at the outset Wednesday, going 2-0 counts against each of New York’s initial two batters, walking one and giving up a single to the other.

The Mets eventually went ahead in the first on Dominic Smith‘s sacrifice fly.

Scherzer entered the game with an 0-1 record and 2.84 ERA this season.
