Golden Sombrero: Hideki Matsui

Top 2: Hideki Matusi walked by R.A. Dickey

Top 4: Matsui called out on strikes against Dickey

Top 7: Matsui struck out swinging against Dickey

Top 9: Matsui called out on strikes against Francisco Rodriguez

Top 11: Matsui walked by Tim Byrdak

Top 13: Matsui struck out swinging against Bobby Parnell

Final Line: 0-for-4, 2 BB, 4 K

Notes: Needing just one more long ball to become the first player to hit 500 combined home runs between Japan and the MLB, Matsui came up painfully empty in the A’s 3-2 loss to the Mets on Wednesday night.  Although I haven’t seen any highlights of his at-bats, I can easily picture Godzilla flailing at Dickey’s fluttering knuckleballs.

Total 2011 Sombreros: 46
