Carlos Beltran gets 2,000th hit
The switch-hitting Beltran, batting left-handed, singled to the opposite field against Kevin Correia to tie the score at 2. During a standing ovation while waiting on first base, he doffed his cap several times.
Earlier this season, the 35-year-old Beltran became the first switch hitter in major league history to accumulate 300 home runs and 300 stolen bases.
The RBI was Beltran's NL-leading 60th of the season, and gave him an RBI in seven straight games.
