Larry Stone of the Seattle Times notes that Ichiro's accomplishment has made a bit of Major League Baseball history.

With a line-drive single to center field in the fifth inning today, Ichiro reached 200 hits for the 10th consecutive season, tying Pete Rose for the most 200-hit seasons in major-league history.

The Mariners players stood up in the dugout and applauded Ichiro, who surpassed Ty Cobb for the most 200-hit seasons in American League history.
