Found October 08, 2012 on Diehardsport:
The 38-year old Ichiro Suzuki is still one slick dude. With Ichiro standing at second base, Robinson Cano hit a ball down the right field line. Suzuki was sent home on the play and somehow tiptoed around two tags by Matt Weiters tag and slid safely into home. The dance move by Ichiro gave the Yankees and early 1-0 lead. What an athletic play. Big thanks to @WorldofIsaac for the GIF

It wasn't even close. There's a line...

ALDS Game 1: Yankees 7, Orioles 2

A 2:26 rain delay and a close game that was in the hands of a great Orioles bullpen didn't leave me much to be optimistic about last night.
