And so concludes the inexplicable two-game Japan miniseries:
Ichiro did not get a hit, ending his March with four hits.
-h/t to MLB.com’s Greg Johns, the record for most hits in March is five, held by Jeff Kent and Toby Hall. Kent did it in one (13 inning) game.
In an Oakland-Seattle game, every run scored on a homer.
Seattle caveat applies, but 8 innings, 1 run, 3 hits for Bartolo Colon.
Similarly, Oakland caveat applies, but no Seattle pitcher has been charged with more than one run.
We’re almost there, folks. Just a few more days.
