Ichiro Suzuki moved within one hit of 4,000 for his career as the New York Yankees swept both games of a day-night doubleheader from the Toronto Blue Jays.

Suzuki, 39, had a single and a double in five at-bats at Yankee Stadium yesterday and has 3,999 career hits combined in Japan and Major League Baseball. Pete Rose (4,256) and Ty Cobb (4,189) are the only professional players with 4,000 hits.

Suzuki had 1,278 hits in Japan and has 2,721 hits during 13 MLB seasons with the Seattle Mariners and Yankees.

The Yankees won the first game 8-4. Robinson Cano hit a three-run homer in the third inning, his 200th career home run, and Chris Stewart added a three-run shot in the sixth as the Yankees rallied from an early 4-0 deficit. Cano added a run-scoring double in the seventh.

In the night game, Jayson Nix hit a solo homer in the seventh inning to tie the game and then gave the Yankees a 3-2 win with a run-scoring single in the ninth. His single drove in Suzuki, who did not get an at-bat in the game.

Suzuki entered the night game as a pinch-runner in the ninth, moved to second on a sacrifice, stole third and then scored the winning run.

The Yankees, who have won eight of their past 10 games, are 66-59 and in fourth place in the American League East division.
