Matt Murton (HAN) went 3-for-3 last night against the Yokohama Bay Stars and now has 191 hits on the year.  That ties the franchise record set by Fumio Fujimura in 1950.  Murton is now just 9 hits away from becoming just the fourth player (second foreign player) in NPB history to attain 200 hits in a season and first player since Alex Ramirez in 2007 to record 200 hits in a season.
