I promise, last post about Ichiro this weekend. But it’s hard to resist passing on this note the Mariners have.
Ichiro last went consecutive games without a hit on Aug. 13 and 15, 2008. He has gone 150 games since. That’s the longest streak in the majors since Stan Musial went 174 games from 1943-44 and the longest streak in the American League since Doc Cramer went 191 games from 1934-35.
Ichiro is 27 hits shy of recording 200 hits for the ninth straight season. That would be an all-time record.
