Shohei Tateyama (YAK) recorded his 10th win of the year last night and gave the Swallows four starters in the rotation with 10 or more victories: Masanori Ishikawa (12-8), Yoshinori Sato (10-9), Kyohei Muranaka (10-8), and Tateyama (10-6).

The last time the team had 4 or more pitchers with double-digit wins was back in 1995 when they had 5 pitchers: Kazuhisa Ishii (13-4), Akimitsu Ito (10-8), Terry Bross (14-5), Futoshi Yamabe (16-7), and Masato Yoshii (10-7).
