Jason Standridge (HAN) recorded his 10th victory of the season last night to become the first foreign Hanshin pitcher to record double-digit wins since Matt Keough won 15 games in the 1989.

Matt Murton (HAN) picked up 2 more hits last night and now has 177 hits on the year.  That puts him in to sole possession of 7th on the Tigers' All-time single season hit list (above Randy Bass and Norihiro Akahoshi's 176 hits in a season).  Murton is now just 4 hits away from tying the franchise's single season hit total by a foreign player: Andy Sheets and his 180 hits from 2006.
