OTD in Ichiro: In 2007, Ichiro hits a leadoff homer off Erik Bedard, one of 37 in his career. That’s a franchise record (no one else has more than six) and ninth all-time. At the time of his 37th, in 2012, it was sixth all-time. (Ichiro also had a single and a double, and the game-winning RBI in the 8th)
