Ryota Wakiya hit a home run in his final at bat in the 9th inning last night against the Hanshin Tigers.  That extended his consecutive games with at least one run scored to 14 and tied the Central League mark set by Takao Sato back in 1952.

Said Wakiya, "Records are records. I'm not really thinking about it. And besides, the team lost."

Next up on the list: Michihiro Ogasawara's PL (and NPB) mark of 17 games that was set back in 2001.
