Ichiro not in lineup for Mariners; Chone Figgins takes over at leadoff spot

mari06062011 015.JPG
Ichiro has played in 1,651 games out of 1,683 in his career and started 1,635 of them. Tonight will be one of the games he doesn’t start. Might be one of the games he doesn’t appear in.
Chone Figgins takes over at leadoff.
This move was a long time in coming. Ichiro went 0-for-4 last night with two strikeouts and two routine groundouts to second base.
This will be the first game he sits out this season.
