[7/8/2016] Masahiro Araki snaps hit drought

Masahiro Araki tied Takeo Yoshizawa’s 1959 Central League record for most consecutive trips to the plate without a hit when he fouled out to first in the first inning of tonight’s game against the Yakult Swallows at Jingu Stadium. It was Araki’s forty-seventh consecutive plate appearance without a hit.

Araki snapped the drought in his next trip to the plate in the third with his first hit (single to center) since June 9.
