Ichiro Pinch-Hit For
May 8, 2016: Ichiro Suzuki was pinch-hit for today in the bottom of the ninth. Has this ever happened before in his major leagues career?
(Marlins down 6-5 with one out in the bottom of the ninth and no one on base. Mattingly pinch hits Giancarlo Stanton for Ichiro in an attempt to tie up the game. Phillies closer, Jeanmar Gomez struck out Stanton and then got Christian Yelich on a fly out to left field to end the game).
Ichiro had lined a single in his previous at-bat and is currently hitting .317.
