The Yomiuri Giants Clutch Hero Award for July goes to Hayato Sakamoto (determined by fan balloting).
July 9, vs Yakult: score tied at three in the bottom of the 7th with a runner on second and two out, Sakamoto slammed a two-run home run to left. This after he committed an error that put the game-tying runner on first with no out in the top-half of the inning (the runner later came around to score on a sac fly). The Giants won the game 6-3.
