The Softbank Hawks extended their current winning streak to eight (8-0-1) with their 9-5 victory over Lotte on May 11. They have recorded two eight-game winning streaks in their first thirty-four games of the season.
The Hawks are the only team to accomplish the feat since 1950. Hanshin once recorded an eight-game winning streak and an eleven-game winning streak during the one-league ERA in 1947.
