...Nobuhiko Matsunaka nailed a grand slam on Sunday and became the 15th player in NPB history to hit double-digit grand slams in their career. 10 career grand slams is also good for a 12th place tie on the All-time list.
Incidentally, Matsunaka's team is 10-0 in games where he has hit a grand slam. There are only two other players with an undefeated record: Norihiro Nakamura (14-0) and Norihiro Komada (13-0). Sadaharu Oh leads all players with 15 lifetime grand slams.
...The Hawks became the first NPB team to rack up 100 Inter-league victories.
