Matt Murton just 3 hits away from 200…

Matt Murton is currently sitting on 197 hits and needs just 3 more for 200.  Murton also extended his hitting streak to 8 games.  Over that 8-game period, Murton is batting .576 (19-for-33).  It should also be noted that he's also picked up 3 hits in each of the last three games he has played in.

Based on his last few games, I'd say he has a fairly decent shot at making 200 today.

EDIT: Murton also recorded his 22nd modasho, surpassing the previous club record of 21 that was originally set by Makoto Imaoka (2002) and Norihiro Akahoshi (2005).
