Rakuten Eagles: June 2, 2010

by on Jun.02, 2010 @ 5:27 pm, under NPB

...The Eagles picked up their fifth walk-off win of the season (third during Inter-league play, which leads all teams).

...Teppei has been hitting well as of late.  Not only did he record his fourth consecutive multi-hit game last night, but he's now also 20-for-59 (.339) with 3 2B, 1 3B, 1 HR, 10 R, 8 RBI, .850 OPS.  And he helped the Eagles win a game last night with his second walk-off hit of his career (the first also coming this year on 5/21 against the Yomiuri Giants).

...Randy Ruiz had a nice start to his Eagles career last night: he went 2-for-4 and scored, what was at the time, the go ahead run in the bottom of the 6th (that was after he reached on a single to right and then advanced to second on a wild pitch).
