[5/29/2016] Shota Imanaga notches fourth win of the month

Shota Imanaga extending his winning streak to four on May 28 against Hiroshima at Yokohama Stadium and now has four wins this month. He joined Masatoshi Gondo (April 1953), Noboru Akiyama (April-September 1956), and Makoto Inagawa (July 1962) as the only rookies in franchise history to record four wins in one month.

Kenta Ishida also has four wins this month. This is the first time Yokohama has fielded two pitchers that recorded four wins in the same month since Kazuhiko Endo and Isamu Kida in August 1986. This is the first time time in franchise history both pitchers were left-handed.
