Marlins by the numbers: Gordon reaches 50 hits

Miami Marlins second baseman Dee Gordon became the first player in MLB to record 50 hits this season with his RBI double in the second inning of Miami's game in San Francisco on Thursday night. Gordon reached the 50-hit mark as a second baseman in his 28th game of the season.

According to Elias, that's the fastest that any major-leaguer has done so since Rogers Hornsby got there in 28 games for the Cardinals in 1924 (the year he hit .424).
