Gardner notches 500th hit of career

TORONTO -- Outfielder Brett Gardner notched a small milestone on Monday at Rogers Centre, logging the 500th hit of his Major League career.

Gardner's hit was a soft single in the fifth inning off Blue Jays right-hander R.A. Dickey that dropped in front of right fielder Moises Sierra.

He was stranded when Dickey got Robinson Cano to fly out to center field, ending the inning.
