Oakland A's designated hitter and Mizuno Brand Ambassador Hideki Matsui had a week to remember. Matsui picked up his 500th career home run, combining his professional careers in Japan as well as Major League Baseball. On the week, he was 12-21 (.571) with four runs scored, two doubles, two homeruns, and seven RBI. Matsui belted his 500th career homerun in a win over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday, but his best performance of the week was in a losing effort to his former team, the New York Yankees, on Sunday. Matsui was 5-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI, as the A's fell to the Yankees 7-5.

Congratulations Hideki!
