Kenji Jojima went 6-for-7 with a pair of three-run homers to highlight a record-breaking Pacific League slugfest in which the Daiei Hawks produced 32 hits to humiliate the Orix BlueWave in a 26-7 triumph on Sunday. Five other Daiei players had three or more hits.

A total of 45 hits were produced for the most in a single game in Japanese baseball history, while Daiei’s 32 hits was also the most ever by a single team and 26 runs a new PL record. The former record of 42 total hits was made in a Central League game in April 1986.
