With a single to shallow right field, Maui native Kurt Suzuki passed a major league milestone many only dream of matching.

In the bottom of the eighth inning on Sunday, Suzuki notched the 1000th hit of his career, which began 9 years ago with the Oakland Athletics.

Suzuki, now a member of the Minnesota Twins, played baseball for Baldwin High School while growing up in Wailuku.

Despite the milestone, Suzuki and the Twins lost the game (3-1) to Toronto.
