Swisher's 1,000th hit part of Yanks' winning rally

NEW YORK -- Nick Swisher's seventh-inning double in Saturday's 4-3 win over the Mets at Citi Field was not only part of a decisive four-run rally for the Yankees, it was also his 1,000th career hit.

Swisher singled off Mets starter Chris Young in his second at-bat, then hustled to second with a double in his third trip to the plate as the ball got past a diving Lucas Duda in right field. Swisher scored on the very next pitch, which Raul Ibanez sent into the right-field seats.

Swisher, a nine-year veteran, has collected 485 of his hits with the Yankees, more than any other club. He had 406 hits in his four seasons with Oakland, and 109 hits came in his one season with the White Sox.
