Norichika Aoki (YAK) recorded his fourth multi-hit game in a row by going 4-for-5 on Wednesday night. For the month of August, Aoki currently has 12 multi-hit games (out of 21).
In order to finish with 200 hits, Aoki will need to collect 41 hits over his next 33 games.
Other players that might have a shot at 200:
|Norichika Aoki||YAK||159||41||33||21 G, 35-for-91|
|Munenori Kawasaki||SOF||159||41||25||20 G, 25-for-86|
|Kensuke Tanaka||HAM||157||43||27||19 G, 21-for-77|
|Tsuyoshi Nishioka||LOT||157||43||28||21 G, 24-for-85|
|Matt Murton||HAN||155||45||35||20 G, 25-for-86|
Assuming about 4 at bats per game:
Based on the numbers, Aoki probably has the best chance, followed by Murton. Kawasaki, Tanaka, and Nishioka probably won't be able to reach 200 unless they go on some crazy hitting streaks.
