...The Hawks scored 10 runs in the 5th last night against the Chiba Lotte Marines. It was the first time the Hawks scored double-digit runs in one inning since they scored 11 runs in one inning against Orix on 7/26/2003.
...Yuya Hasegawa had reached base in 9 straight plate appearances before striking out in the 9th last night. Going back to his third at bat against the Rakuten Eagles on 6/27: double to right, IBB, IBB, IBB, single to left, BB, HBP, BB, double to center. That established a career high for Hasegawa.
...The Hawks are back in second place for the first time since 5/8.
