Yakult Swallows

When Wladimir Balentien homered in his first at bat on Wednesday, it was in his fourth straight at bat.  That tied an NPB record that was accomplished eighteen other times by seventeen players, the last of which was Atsuya Furuta in 2003.

Beginning with his last at bat on June 8: home run to left, home run to left, walk, home run to left, walk, home run to center.
