Seattle Mariners second baseman Robinson Cano reached the 1,000-RBI milestone with a bang, driving in six runs during Tuesday’s 11-1 win over the Houston Astros, per MLB Stat of the Day.

He entered the contest with 998 career RBI and needed just two more to become the 281st player (and 12th active player) with 1,000-plus.

After making outs in his first two at-bats, Cano stepped up to the plate against Astros ace Dallas Keuchel with the bases loaded and two outs in the fifth inning, and he promptly delivered a two-run single that gave him exactly 1,000 RBI, in addition to giving his team a 5-0 lead.

Not yet done, Seattle’s star second baseman put the game away in the seventh inning with a grand slam to right-center field off of Astros relief pitcher Michael Feliz.

Elsewhere, Texas Rangers designated hitter Prince Fielder recorded his 999th career RBI in a 10-1 win over the New York Yankees, and he positioned himself to join Cano (and 280 others) in the 1,000-RBI club within the next few days.

Detroit Tigers designated hitter Victor Martinez reached the same milestone just last week, and New York Mets third baseman David Wright (961 career RBI) should get there by the end of the season—if he manages to stay reasonably healthy.
