Finally, it happened! Dayán Viciedo hit 100 career home runs in Japan! On Wednesday’s day at Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB), the slugger not only reached the round figure, but also gave the Chunichi Dragons a 4-2 win over Yokohama DeNA Baystars with his home run.
Viciedo, in total, went 4-1, with the historic homer and three RBIs (thus he reached 79 and took over the leadership of that department in the Central League). His full-lap smash, which came with two runners on board in the seventh inning, allowed him to become the 22nd Latino with that amount on the Japanese circuit and only the third Cuban to hit a hundred home runs, along with Orestes Destrade ( 160) and Alfredo Despaigne (159).
The first baseman reached 102 undisputed and 16 hits after 103 challenges, in which he has 45 runs scored, 33 walks, 46 fans and offensive averages of .264 / .326 / .442. In his last four meetings, he has seven made and a .353 average, thanks to six hits in 17 chances.
Another who does not stop batting is Yurisbel Gracial. In the SoftBank Hawks 9-1 win against the Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters, the Cuban went 4-1 with a double (his ninth of the regular round), a pair of RBIs (to reach 31) and a strikeout.
In his last six games, Gracial has hit 11 hits in 21 legal trips to the batter’s box, along with three biangulars, a home run, nine RBIs, seven rounds, a walk and four strikeouts. His average with the stick in that span is .524. After this day, his global line was at .294 / .339 / .479.
Finally in Japan, Leonys Martín is still in the doldrums and went blank in three valid chances, in the backhand suffered by the Chiba Lotte Marines 2-1 against the Saitama Seibu Lions. His average ended the day at .234.
