Card Of The Week June 16

Wladimir Balentien of the Swallows did something pretty cool last week - he homered in four straight at bats spread out over three games.  He hit his 17th of the season in the ninth inning of an 8-4 loss to the Fighters on the 8th, hit numbers 18 and 19 the next day in a 10-4 loss to the Fighters (mixed in with two walks) and then number 20 in his first at bat in Wednesday's 7-3 defeat by the Hawks.  He hit his 21st homer today, putting him only two back of Tony Blanco for the lead despite having played 11 fewer games.

Here's Balentien's first Japanese card, from the 2011 BBM 1st Version set (#263):
