Torii Hunter entered the season 14 hits shy of 2,000 for his major league career.

And in Game No. 7 as a Tiger, he's already there.

With a sixth-inning single Tuesday afternoon at Comerica Park -- his third hit of the day -- Hunter reached the milestone. He became the 14th active major-leaguer with 2,000 hits.

After his sharp single to right center, the ball was sent to the dugout for safekeeping, and Hunter received a rousing ovation from a modest crowd on a chilly, overcast day.
