The Yakult Swallows make it 10 in row

by on Aug.14, 2010 @ 1:02 am, under NPB

The Yakult Swallows beat the Hanshin Tigers on Friday night to extend their winning streak to 10 straight.  The last time the Swallows won 10 in row was back in June 1997 (it seems this is also the 5th time the team has won 10 straight in franchise history).  And the seven double-digit hit games in a row also ties a franchise record -- accomplished once in 1980, twice in 2002, and once in 2003.  The NPB record of 15 games was set by Shochiku in 1950.
