Hanshin Tigers

Hiroshima Carp

  • Brad Eldred struck out in his twenty-fifth straight game on Sunday.  He has struck out a total fifty-two times during the twenty-five-game stretch.

Yakult Swallows

  • On Saturday, the Swallows became the sixth team in NPB history to record at least ten hits in ten or more consecutive games, first since Hanshin in 2008.  They also became the only last place team to accomplish the feat: the four teams in the past were in the first place and 1992 Nippon Ham was in third place.
