Ichiro goes deep twice in Chi-Town!

NWSB Insider and Seattle Mariners blogger Clinton Bell tells us to him the best “MY oh MY” play of the ninth week of the year had to be the two home run game by Ichiro Suzuki. When the M’s play at U.S. Cellular field, it alwasy reminds me of the 4 homer game by Mike Cameron. Ichiro made it half way there, and finally beat the Sox at the same time. Ichiro just seems to have Gavin Floyd’s number.
