Ichiro: the Blue Jay Killer

Who else but the mighty Ichiro would drive a dagger through the hearts of the Blue Jays for the final blow of the ballgame?

If you thought that pitch was way outside the strike zone, just check out the PitchFX above. Ichiro was so determined to hit that pitch not matter what that Scott Downs could have thrown the ball ten feet outside of the zone and Ichiro still would have got the game-winning hit.
And that's why Ichiro is a career .353 hitter against the Blue Jays. Kudos to a great hitter, and congratulations to Ichiro on his first career walk-off hit.
