Takahiro Arai crossed the plate for the 1,000th time in his career during Thursday’s game against the Yomiuri Giants at Tokyo Dome. The milestone came in the sixth inning when he reached first on a ground out to third, advanced to second on a wild pitch, then scored on a single to center by Seiya Suzuki.

Arai is the forty-first player to record 1,000 runs scored. At thirty-nine years and six months, he is the sixth oldest player to reach the milestone. He scored his 1,000th run in his 2,197th game. Only Yasunori Oshima needed more games (2,347).
