Round 2 of Name That Box Score 

The four readers who stuck through the end of last season might remember the first installment of Name That Box Score. Today, with not a whole lot of Mariner material out there, I thought we could do it one more time. Last time was easy (the answer was Griffey Jr.'s debut). This one will be a little bit tougher. If you can name the date and historical significance of the box score that follows, leave a comment below and I'll be sure to give you your prize of a high-five when I get the chance. And no, the answer isn't that Hasegawa beaned A-Rod.

Comments:
It is from April 14, 2002 but all I can figure out is it was Seattle's 7th win in a row.....well, I tried...
 
The only notable thing I see about this box score is the Triple Play that the Rangers got... could it be the first triple play that Seattle had given up in their history?
 
Close, the big thing is which Mariner hit into the triple play.
 
ichiro! and not a line drive, double/triple up kind, but around the horn!

Not Ichiro, although that would be one incredible around the horn. You need to play a game of "One of these things is not like the others" with this one.
 
This feat has nothing to do with the triple play, but this was the first game in MLB history where both the win and the save were earned by pitchers from Japan.

And my guess is that Mike Cameron hit the triple play, but I don't see how that is historical.
 
Is it really the first time that's happened? That's not what I was going for.

Since neither of the four readers are really that close, this was the MLB debut of Ron Wright, who had maybe the worst one-game career in history. He was 0-3, striking out and hitting into both double and triple plays in the only Major League game in which he'll probably ever see the field.

The Japanese pitcher thing is probably more important, though.
