[7/19/2016] at home Hero Award for June

The at home Hero Award for June was given to Shinnosuke Abe for his game against Nippon Ham at Tokyo Dome on June 4. With the score tied at four and one out in the sixth, Abe drove a fastball over the fence in right. It was his second home run since he made it back to the active roster. He had been struggling with right shoulder problems and had also been working hard to make adjustments to his swing to account for a decline in power. The home run helped the Giants win their sixth straight game.
