by on Aug.03, 2011 @ 11:47 pm, under NPB

Tsuyoshi Wada got the win against the Orix Buffaloes tonight and in the process, recorded his 100th career victory.

Wada recorded his first victory on 4/1/2003 against the Kintetsu Buffaloes and is the 130th pitcher in NPB history to reach the 100 win mark.

The Hawks plan on selling a t-shirt, face towel, and bag (all designed by Wada and limited in quantities to 100) commemorating the milestone.

UPDATE 8/4 @ 1:43am - Wada's 100 victories in 200 games is a speed-record for left-handed pitchers (8th overall when including right-handed pitchers).
