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.
