by on Jun.14, 2010 @ 5:27 pm, under NPB

...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.
