ST. LOUIS (AP) - Jason Kendall of the Milwaukee Brewers singled in the second inning Monday night for his 2,000th hit, becoming the eighth full-time catcher to reach that milestone.

The 34-year-old Kendall is primarily the eighth-place hitter for Milwaukee. He singled up the middle off Kyle Lohse of the St. Louis Cardinals with one out in the second, his third hit in two games.

Ivan Rodriguez of the Houston Astros is the leader among players with at least 1,000 games at catcher with 2,636, according to the Elias Sports Bureau. Kendall, the only other active player on the list, is 48 hits behind Johnny Bench for seventh place.

Others on the list are: Ted Simmons (2,472), Carlton Fisk (2,356), Yogi Berra (2,150), Mike Piazza (2,127) and Gary Carter (2,092).
