[4/23/2016] Takayama recorded third four-hit game of the year on April 22

Shun Takayama notched his third four-hit game of the season on April 22 against Hiroshima at Mazda Stadium. He joined Shiro Takegami (1967), Terumitsu Kumano (1985), and Kazuhiro Kiyohara (1986) as the only players since the start of the draft in 1966 to collect three four-hit games in their first year. Takayama is the only one to accomplish the feat before the end of April.
