During the 6th inning of Sunday’s contest with the Baltimore Orioles, Chone Figgins reached a milestone in his career by knocking his 1,000th base hit in his 7-year professional career.
The speedy veteran would lace a single right back up the middle off Orioles starter Jeremy Guthrie, scoring Howie Kendrick, which then broke a 6-6 tie.
Figgy would tie his season-high with 4 hits (3 of them doubles) on the game, as well as post a new season high in RBI with 3 runs driven in on the game. He would also score 3 runs (pushing his American League-leading total to 92 runs on the season) and steal a base.
That’s just Figgy doing what he’s always done over the course of his Angel career: get on base, steal bases, and score plenty of runs.
