TORONTO -- Mark Teixeira recorded his 1,500th career hit with an RBI single down the right-field line in Wednesday night's 8-1 Yankees loss to the Blue Jays at Rogers Centre.

Teixeira drove a 3-1 offering from right-hander Kyle Drabek that took a big hop off the turf and hopped over the glove of first baseman Edwin Encarnacion.

It was Teixeira's 511th hit since joining the Yankees in 2009.

The switch-hitting Teixeira, who has recorded 30-plus homers and 100-plus RBIs in each of the past eight seasons, is batting .234 with five home runs and 20 RBIs this year.
