Jose Fernandez (SEI) went 2-for-4 last night and the first single he collected ended up being his 1,000th of his NPB career.  He is the 260th player (and just the 11th foreign player) in NPB history to reach the milestone.

Fernandez started the year playing in Mexico and returned to Japan to play for the Lions on 6/25.  Fernandez has spent time with Lotte, Rakuten, Orix, and Seibu over his 8 year career in the NPB.
