Yakult Swallows: Junji Ogawa quickest in franchise history to 100 wins

by on Aug.03, 2011 @ 4:53 am, under NPB

Junji Ogawa picked up his 100th managerial victory in his 176th game last night and became the quickest manager to 100 wins in franchise history.

UPDATE 8/3 @ 12:25pm - A little more on Ogawa's 100th managerial win:

It made him the 125th manager in NPB history to record 100 wins.

His record is 100-62-14.

100 wins in 176 games also makes Ogawa the 13th quickest to 100 in NPB history.  That would be behind managers like Tatsunori Hara (100 in 167 games) and Hiromitsu Ochiai (100 in 170 games).
