Nori’s record-setting series

Nori Aoki recorded an amazing 11 hits during the Chicago series…four on Monday, four on Tuesday and three on Wednesday!  His second hit on Wednesday set up Lorenzo Cain’s three-run homer and also tied both George Brett and Willie Wilson for the most by a Royal in a three game series at 10.  Aoki wasn’t done – just an inning later, he recorded number 11, claiming the club record.  Fans chanted his name during the late innings and Nori returned the appreciation by tipping his cap during a postgame interview.   Aoki was the subject of a Gatorade bucket splash, though most of it ended up on his translator, Kosuke Inaji.
