The Yomiuri Giants hit four home runs at Tokyo Dome last night (Hayato Sakamoto, Alex Ramirez, Shinnosuke Abe, and Edgar Gonzalez) and now have a total 101 homers in 51 games at Tokyo Dome this season (about 1.98 homers a game).  The franchise record of 118 homers at Tokyo Dome was set in 2004 (in 62 games) at a pace of about 1.90 homers a game.

Ramirez and Abe lead all Giants with 18 homers at Tokyo Dome.  That's followed by Sakamoto's 17 and Michihiro Ogasawara's 16.  Ramirez set the record for most Tokyo Dome homers in a season with 23 in 2008.
