Brandon Laird became the 20th player to go deep in four consecutive at-bats in Nippon Professional Baseball on Saturday as the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters defeated the Chiba Lotte Marines 11-6.

A day after hitting two two-run homers before drawing two walks in Nippon Ham’s 15-1 demolition of Lotte, Laird belted a solo shot in the second inning at Tokyo Dome. He again took Lotte starter Kota Futaki, who lasted three innings allowing five runs, deep in the third, this time for two runs to give his team a 5-1 lead.
