Juan Pierre is even with the Yankee Clipper.
Pierre tied Joe DiMaggio on the all-time hits list when he doubled in the seventh inning of the Miami Marlins' 6-4 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies on Tuesday night.
For a team with the second-worst record in the majors, these are still moments worthy of celebration.
Pierre, pinch-hitting for pitcher Brian Flynn, hit a double to right for his 2,215th career hit, tying him with the Hall of Famer for 175th on the all-time list.
''I never set out to beat any of those guys,'' Pierre said. ''I know all about Joe DiMaggio and what he meant to the game. Just to be mentioned with him is pretty cool.''
Pierre, who played with the Phillies last season, was standing on second base when former teammate Jimmy Rollins had some fun with him.
''He pretended to throw the ball away, but he gave it to me,'' Pierre said.
Chase Utley hit a three-run homer and drove in four and Roy Halladay tossed six effective innings for the Phillies.
