Cuban Gracial hits 16th homerun in JapanHAVANA, Cuba, Jun 19 (acn) Cuban Yurisbel Gracial blasted his sixteenth homer of the season, scored two runs and batted in one, in the 6-4 win of the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks over the Tokyo Yakult Swallows, in the Interleague stage of Japanese Professional Baseball League (NPB).

This was Gracial´s third homer in the last five games, and he also batted a single in four at-bats to raise his batting average (BA) to .329 and a total of 33 RBIs.
But his compatriot and teammate Alfredo Despaigne did not have similar luck, as he hit 0 for 4, including two strikeouts, thus decreasing his BA to .269.
Meanwhile, Cuban lefty setupper Livan Moinelo allowed two hits in one inning, but solved that bad moment by striking out two rivals. Thus, he lowered his ERA to 1.20.
In this Interleague Play, the Hawks appear first, with record of eight wins, two draws and three losses, tied with the Yomiuri Giants (9-0-4).
