Frederich Cepeda hits his first Grand Salami in Japan ~ May 29, 2014

Frederich Cepeda has woken up from his slumber.

Today he connected his first Grand Salami in Japan's NPB.

Here is the report from The Japan Times:

"The Giants put runners on second and third with two away in the seventh, and the Eagles intentionally walked Hayato Sakamoto to get to Cepeda, who was hitting .167 prior to the at-bat. The Cuban star, who has struggled in his first two weeks in Japan, made Rakuten pay with a towering drive to left-center that just cleared the fence and tacked four more runs onto the lead."

JG: The .167 batting average is incorrect. Cepeda was batting .176 after 11 games, according to the NPB official page for Frederich Cepeda. 

The Yomiuri Giants defeated the Rakuten Eagles 6-0.

Frederich's batting average is now .189.
