New York Yankees outfielder Carlos Beltran recorded his 2,500th career hit during the fourth inning of Saturday's eventual 9-5 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays, thereby joining Barry Bonds, Willie Mays, Andre Dawson and current teammate Alex Rodriguez as the only players in major league history with 2,500 hits, 400 home runs and 300 stolen bases, per Sportsnet Stats on Twitter.
Beltran's milestone hit was a solo home run to left field off of Rays pitcher Matt Moore, cutting Tampa Bay's early lead from 5-0 to 5-1. The Rays quickly put the game out of reach over the following two innings, extending the lead to 9-1 by the bottom of the fifth, which allowed Moore to pick up his second win of the year.
Beltran made outs in his other two plate appearances, and he was removed from the contest early due to tightness near his right scapula, per MLB.com's Bryan Hoch.
The 39-year-old Puerto Rican outfielder—who has 404 homers and 311 steals to go along with his 2,500 hits—was subsequently held out of the lineup for Sunday's series finale, allowing 26-year-old Aaron Hicks to get the start in right field.
