M's bring out the big bats (Bob Finnigan, 6/11/06, Seattle Times)
If Richie Sexson and Raul Ibanez keep up their act, there could be a new term added to the baseball lexicon — the suicide intentional walk.Posted by Orrin Judd at June 11, 2006 8:22 AM
Ten times this season, the opposition has walked Ibanez to get to Sexson, including Saturday.
Twice, including Saturday night's 12-6 Mariners victory over the Angels, Sexson has followed with grand slams. In fact, Sexson has wrecked the strategy more than that.
By unofficial count he is 4 for 9 with a...walk after intentional walks to Ibanez, who leads the league in intentional walks.
