Keiichi Hirano (HAN) recorded his 57th sac hit of the season tonight and set a new franchise record that was originally set by Yutaka Wada in 1988.

Takashi Toritani (HAN) drove in 2 runs tonight and now has 100 RBI on the season.  That makes him the first shortstop in NPB history to reach the 100 mark.

Matt Murton (HAN) went 2-for-5 tonight and is now just 1 hit away from tying Ichiro's single season record of 210.
