Softbank Hawks looking to set NPB record for strikeouts

by on Sep.15, 2010 @ 4:35 am, under NPB

The Softbank Hawks pitching staff went into last night's game with 1,164 strikeouts.  The Hawks pitchers racked up 10 strikeouts during last night's game and the club managed to tie the PL record of 1,174 strikeouts they set last year.  The NPB record of 1,208 was set by the Hanshin Tigers in 2005.  With 8 more games remaining, it seems likely that the Hawks will set a new NPB record this year.
