Happening Elsewhere: 50 for Jose Bautista, 200 for Ichiro, .500 for King Felix

Eventful game yesterday between the Mariners and Blue Jays, considering it was a 1-0 contest between two teams with a lot of empty space coming up on their calendars. The Jays’ Jose Bautista accounted for the lone run with his 50th home run of the season (Career total prior: 59), the first player to reach the total in three years. Mariners outfielder Ichiro Suzuki notched his 200th base hit of the season, giving him ten 200x seasons in a row, the longest streak in MLB history. And despite pitching a two-hit, one-run game, M’s ace Felix Hernandez hung another L, dropping the AL’s best pitcher to 12-12 for the year and essentially killing his Cy Young hopes.

And no, I have no idea what’s going on with this video. Best analysis I could find on short notice.
