Takuya Asao (CHU) recorded his 56th Hold Point of the season earlier today and set a new NPB record for Hold Points in a season.  The previous mark of 55 Hold Points was set by Tomoyuki Kubota in 2007.

Asao also extended his consecutive Hold Point streak to 24 games and is just one Hold away from breaking the single season record set by Kyuji Fujikawa in 2005 and Tomoyuki Kubota in 2007.
