Adrian Beltre Makes History!

Adrian Beltre

Furthermore, he's the 31st player to reach the 3,000-hit milestone and he's one of the youngest players to do so.

Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre collected his 3,000 career hit Sunday afternoon in the Rangers' 10-6 loss to Baltimore.

Albert Pujols is on pace to become the 32nd player in Major League Baseball history to join the 3,000-hit club later this season or the beginning of next, adding to his impressive Hall of Fame resume.

He was 1 for 4 on Saturday night, grounding out twice after he led off the fourth inning with a single for his 2,999th career hit. Baltimore scored five more in the inning to open up a 9-2 lead and dampen the buzz that filled the stadium after Beltre's milestone hit.

RAYS 5, YANKEES 3: Corey Dickerson hit a go-ahead, two-run single in a three-run third, and Tampa Bay'S bullpen allowed one hit over five scoreless innings to salvage the finale of a four-game series against NY at New York. The Rockies acquired catcher Jonathan Lucroy from the Rangers for a player to be named. He entered Sunday's game hitting.310 with nine home runs and 36 RBI.

But it wasn't too long until the 31st player in Major League Baseball history to have 3,000 career hits let his guard down.

In typical Patriots fashion, Ninkovich delivered answers that centered around his health, future, and older players he has seen. Ninkovich was a fifth-round pick by the Saints in 2006, which proved to be one of the best draft classes in franchise history.

The moment Beltre hit for the 3,000th time in his 20-year career, it was at the same time where he doubled for the 605th time, tying with Paul Molitor for 14th all-time.

This season, the 38-year-old Beltre is batting an impressive.313/.390/.544. "I don't know if anybody in the game has more universal respect from the opposition". He also doubled in the third and fifth innings, scoring both times on singles by Beltre. "I never expected that, I never saw myself doing that", Beltre said.

NOTES: Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre became 16th right-handed batter record 3,000 career.

Nomar Mazara had three doubles, driving in two runs in the first to put the Rangers ahead to stay.

Pirates 7, Padres 1: Andrew McCutchen hit three home runs for the third time in his career.
