Xander Bogaerts gets 1000th MLB hit

The Boston Red Sox’ Aruban shortstop Xander Bogaerts became the third Red Sox player to get 1000 base hits before the age of 27. Only Tris Speaker and Bobby Doerr preceded him.

Unfortunately, Bogaerts’ hit wasn’t of any value for the Red Sox as he didn’t drive in a run or scored himself after it. The record-setting hit came in the fourth inning of tonight’s game vs the Yankees with a 3-1 count when Xander hit a grounder to right fielder Aaron Judge.

Bogaerts is having a career year with 31 home runs and a .310/.386/.572 slash line.

On August 19, 2013, Bogaerts broke into the Majors. It took him a bit than six years to reach the milestone of 1000 hits.

Early September, Bogaerts was a triple shy of the cycle in the 4-3 win vs the Los Angeles Angels.
