Hiroshima Carp: May 14, 2010

...Kenta Kurihara extended his multi-hit streak to 8 games on Thursday night by going 2-for-4.  That tied a franchise high that was set by Wade Rowdon in 1989.

...Seems the base-throwing t-shirt has been selling well.  400 t-shirts were prepared for Thursday's game, of which over 100 were purchased at the stadium store.  Throw in the 300 they've sold via the internet and you have a fairly hot item.  (100 t-shirts sold during one game is considered big.)

...On a side note, Nikkan Sports makes mentions of the OPS stat when comparing Andy Phillips with Kurihara.  I know the stat has probably been referenced before, but this is one of the first times I recall seeing it.
