On June 11, 2009 The Chiba Lotte Marines sets a Nippon Pro Baseball record with 15 runs in an inning, en route to a 23 – 2 romp over the Hiroshima Carp. #9 hitter Toshiaki Imae drives in six in the rout. Shoitsu Omatsu becomes the first player to bat three times in an inning in NPB history. Scott Dohmann is the worst of three hurlers in the 15-run inning, allowing 6 earned runs without retiring a soul. Amazingly, no Marines homer in the big inning.
