[10/7/2016] at home Hero Award for September

The at home Hero Award for September was given to Shuichi Murata for his game against the Yakult Swallows at Tokyo Dome on September 16. He lowered his gip and help him with his timing. One of his goals this season was to bat .300, but he still feels the home run is what excites fans the most. With runners on second and third and one out in the first inning, he blasted his first home run in five games and his twentieth of the season. He also recorded an RBI single to left with runners on first and second and no out in the fifth inning.
