Found August 05, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
New York Yankees outfielder Ichiro Suzuki got credit for a double after hitting a pop fly ball that Seattle Mariners center fielder Michael Saunders lost in the sun during Sunday's game at Yankee Stadium.

It happened in the bottom of the seventh inning as Saunders tried to fight the sun to make the play, but the ball landed at his feet and bounced towards right field.

Ichiro ran all the way and made it to second base easily. It was his only hit of the game during the 6-2 Yankees victory.

Saunders has had his share of fielding issues, as earlier this year he lost a fly ball in the lights and it bounced off his glove and hit him in the face.
