Hits, Game/Season: 1/178
Runs Batted In: 2
Left on Base: 2
Notes: Played left and right, batted second… Popout, groundout, groundout, grounded into force out, double… 28th double, 55th RBI, 29th stolen base… The Yankees clinch the AL East and home-field advantage throughout the AL playoffs… Still disappointing that Ichiro’s no longer with the Mariners, but great to see him back in the postseason — the first time since his 2001 rookie year.
Next: ALDS Game 1 at either Baltimore or Texas (whoever wins Friday’s AL wild card game), TBD Sunday.
