TORONTO (AP) -Frank Thomas hit his 244th homer as a designated hitter in Toronto's 4-2 loss to the Washington Nationals on Sunday, breaking Edgar Martinez's major league record.
``I'm proud to pass him,'' Thomas said. ``What a great player he was.''
With two out in the third, Thomas hit the first pitch from Washington's Micah Bowie into the second deck in left to tie it at 2. It was his ninth of the season, the 496th of his career and first since May 31 against the Chicago White Sox.
The 39-year-old Thomas is 21st on baseball's career home run list, eight behind Eddie Murray.
