[6/3/2016] Softbank Hawks go back-to-back-to-back

The Softbank Hawks went back-to-back-to-back against the Hrisohima Carp at Mazda Stadium on June 3. It happened in the third inning with Hiroki Kuroda on the mound for Hiroshima. With one out and the bases empty, Yuki Yanagita hit a home run to left-center (2-2 pitch), followed by Seiichi Uchikawa with a drive that just made it over the left field fence (1-0 pitch), and topped off by Nobuhiro Matsuda with a shot to right-center (1-0 pitch).

For Softbank, it was the first time three players went back-to-back-to-back since Nobuhiko Matsunaka, Kenji Jojima, and Julio Zuleta in 2005 on April 16 against Lotte and July 3 against Orix.

Hiroshima’s Brad Eldred, Seiya Suzuki, and Shota Dobayashi went back-to-back-to-back earlier this year against the Yakult Swallows at Jingu Stadium on April 26.
