Raul Ibanez is the only major leaguer to get six singles in a nine-inning game in the last 49 seasons.

Seven years ago Thursday, when he was with the Seattle Mariners, Ibanez did so in a 16-6 victory over the Angels in Anaheim. He managed to knock in five runs and scored one himself. Three of his hits came with two out.

White Sox outfielder Floyd Robinson had been the previous player to do so, on July 22, 1962.
