Card Of The Week June 14

Ikuhiro Kiyota of the Marines had a 23 game hitting streak stopped last Wednesday against the Dragons.  One of my complaints about this year's 1st Version set was the number of significant guys left out of it - Kiyota is just another example of this.  He hasn't had a 1st Version card since 2013.

Kiyota was taken by Lotte in the fourth round of the fall 2009 draft.  He capped his rookie season by winning an "Outstanding Player" award in the 2010 Nippon Series where he went 10 for 30 with a homer and six RBIs and six runs scored:
