Norichika Aoki collects 65th multi-hit game

by on Sep.26, 2010 @ 4:30 am, under NPB

Norichika Aoki (YAK) went 2-for-4 last night for his 65th multi-hit game of the year.  That set a new Central League record that Aoki himself established in 2006.  Aoki is now just 4 multi-hit games away from tying the NPB record Ichiro Suzuki set in 1995.

Aoki also managed to extend his hitting streak 21 games and is now just 1 hit away from becoming the first player in NPB history to have two 200-hit seasons.
