Prince notches 1,000th career hit in first inning
DETROIT -- A day after Prince Fielder hit his first and second home runs as a Tiger, he hit another milestone with his 1,000th hit as a Major Leaguer, this one a ground-ball single through the right side in Sunday's four-run first inning against the Red Sox.

It was another set of back-to-back hits for Fielder and Miguel Cabrera, only this time with similar grounders for hits.

Just four of those first 1,000 hits came as a Tiger for Fielder, who picked up the rest with the Brewers. But the honor drew no less of an ovation from the Comerica Park crowd when it popped up on the scoreboard.

Fielder's 1,000th hit came in his 1,001st Major League game, part of a two-hit, two-run performance. He has averaged better than a hit a game every year since 2007.
