Giants set new team record for homers at home

The Giants blasted their 119th and 120th homers at Tokyo Dome yesterday that set a new franchise record.

And a correction: as mentioned yesterday, Shinnosuke Abe (YOM) hit his 22nd homer at Tokyo Dome on the 21st.  He didn't actually set a new record for Japanese players, he simply tied it.  Hayato Sakamoto hit a home run last night at Tokyo Dome (his second in as many nights) and DID set a new record for homers by a Japanese player at Tokyo Dome with 23.  He also tied the record Alex Ramirez set in 2008.

And for those wondering, Ramirez currently has 21 Tokyo Dome homers while Michihiro Ogasawara has 20.
