[8/13/2016] Randy Messenger notched fifth double-digit win season

Randy Messenger recorded a win against the Chunichi Dragons on August 12 for his tenth win of the year and fifth double-digit win season (2011-2014, 2016). Messenger and Gene Bacque are the only two foreign pitchers in franchise history to win ten or more games in five seasons (Bacque accomplished the feat in five consecutive seasons between 1964 and 1968). Only one other foreign pitcher in NPB history has more double-digit win seasons: Tai-Yuan Kuo with six (1987-1989, 1991, 1992, 1994).
