Ichiro Suzuki

Ichiro Suzuki got his milestone out of the way early. Then Alfonso Soriano took care of winning the game. It was Soriano who delivered the game-winning, two-run home run in the eighth inning tonight, sending the Yankees to a 4-2 win against the Blue Jays. Seven innings earlier, Ichiro was congratulated on the field after collecting the 4,000th hit of his career, a line drive single in the first inning. Yankees spot starter Adam Warren allowed two runs in the first three innings, and it was instead David Huff who shined with one hit through five innings of scoreless long relief. The Yankees got their two early runs in the second and third innings on a sac fly by Austin Romine — who just missed a three-run homer — and a two-out, RBI single by Curtis Granderson. Mariano Rivera closed out the win with his 37th save of the season.
