Alfonso Soriano Reaches 1,000 Career RBIs In Loss To Cincinnati Reds

Alfonso Soriano's two-run, first-inning home run off of Cincinnati Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto gave the Chicago Cubs outfielder 1,000 RBIs for his career. Soriano talked about the milestone after the game, with ESPN Chicago reporting:

"Oh man I’m very proud (of the RBI milestone) because I remember my first year and I didn’t even think that I was going to be here now; time flies," he said. "I feel like the same kind of guy who loves the game, loves to play it every day and I feel like this is my first year in the big leagues. I know it’s my 13th, 14th year in the big leagues but I don’t feel it that way. I just feel like this is my first year and I still love the game."

Soriano also talked about being surprised he reached the milestone because he spent a portion of his career batting leadoff rather than in more typically run-producing spots.
