OTD Ichiro, 2002: Another of his 200th hits in a season, this time it comes off of Mariner nemesis Jarrod Washburn.
On last Sunday in Ichiro, 2009: I also have to issue a mea culpa here. I had Sunday’s game chart but misread our OTD Ichiro spreadsheet and accidentally put Monday’s in the chart. No big deal really except that it meant omitting one of the most iconic Ichiro moments. So: on 9/18/2009, Ichiro hit a walkoff home run off Mariano Rivera. This game would have been notable anyway for being the only game ever to feature six of the top 11 Mariners by bWAR (Griffey, Ichiro, Felix, A-Rod, Cano, & Beltre).
