SEATTLE -- Ichiro Suzuki broke the major league
single-season record with his 199th single in the seventh inning of
the Seattle Mariners' game against the Oakland Athletics on Friday
With a hit in the seventh inning for his second single of the
game, Suzuki bettered the mark of 198 singles set by Lloyd Waner of
Pittsburgh in 1927.
Suzuki's two hits gave him 235 for the season, 22 shy of the
major league single-season record set by George Sisler of the St.
Louis Browns in 1920.
The Mariners have 15 games left after Friday night.
