Alex Ramirez (YOM) went 3-for-4 last night and now has 152 hits on the year.  That gives Ramirez an impressive 9 straight seasons of 150 or more hits, most in NPB history (consecutive seasons).  Kazuo Matsui is in second with 7.

9 seasons of 150 or more hits is also good for a second tie with Isao Harimoto on the all-time list for seasons of 150 or more hits over a course of a career  Shigeo Nagashima holds the NPB record with 11 seasons of 150 or more hits.
