Card Of The Week July 24

Yoshitomo Tsutsugoh had a pretty good week last week.  On Tuesday he hit two solo home runs against the Swallows, the second one accounting for the winning run in the top of the ninth in the Baystars 9-8 win.  On Wednesday he again hit two home runs, a solo and a two run shot.  The first of the two put the Baystars ahead for good against the Swallows in a game they eventually won 9-2.  After an off day on Thursday, he was back at it again on Friday against the Giants.  He had a solo shot in the sixth and then the game winning solo shot in the bottom of the twelfth.  Here's the video of the at bat for his last home run (H/T NPB Reddit):

Tsutsugoh is the first player in NPB history to record three straight multi-home run games.  Here's his card from the 2013 Front Runner Trading Cards (Frontier International) Baystars Rookies & Young Stars set (#05):
