Tetsuto Yamada notched the ninth multi-homer game of his career on May 1 with home runs in back-to-back at bats. The two home runs made him one of the first players in the Central League to reach ten home runs this season (the other is Brad Eldred). Yamada is the ninth player in franchise history to be one of the first to hit ten home runs in the league. Of the nine, only three were Japanese. The other two: Yukihiko Machida in 1955 and Atsuya Furuta in 1992.
