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.  [official announcement - box score]
