Ichiro Suzuki had hoped to help the Yankees mount a late-inning comeback against the Orioles Monday night, but he had to settle for a personal milestone in the Bombers' 5-4 loss.

Ichiro's seventh-inning home run was the 100th of his career, snapping a 188-at-bat homerless streak for the 10-time All-Star.

"I've been playing for 11-1/2 years," Ichiro said through his translator. "One-hundred home runs, not that I'm embarrassed, but it's not something to make a big deal out of."

The homer, which came off Orioles starter Miguel Gonzalez, marked Ichiro's first as a Yankee. He finished the night 1-for-4, and has a hit in each of his seven games as a Yankee.
