PITTSBURGH –In his first at-bat against the New York Mets on Sunday, Andrew McCutchen ripped a single to left field for the 2,000th hit of his major league career.
The base hit came off of Mets right-hander Carlos Carrasco to leadoff the bottom of the first inning.
By reaching the milestone, McCutchen became the 291st player in history to get to 2,000 hits. He currently ranks fifth amongst active players in hits.
Of McCutchen’s 2,000 career hits, 1,515 have come while with the Pittsburgh Pirates — the 12th most in team history.

McCutchen is in reach of several more milestones. He is one double away from 400 in his career and 300 with the Pirates and needs five more homers for 300.
