Ichiro Watch

Eric here, pinch hitting on the latest on Ichiro's attempt to get a new season-high hits record. It's not been pretty of late, as Boston has been completely dominant over the Mariners in the last two games, 13-2 and 9-0. At any rate, Ichiro didn't get a hit in either game. So now he has to get 29 hits in the last 20 games to break Sisler's record. He's capable of doing it, however, so if his bat can get hot again it will be another little ray of sunshine in an otherwise dismal season.
