...With the Eagles losing their game on the 28th, Katsuya Nomura will now turn to his favorite pitcher, Masahiro Tanaka for the feat. That Tanaka could potentially be the winning pitcher on record for Nomura's 1,500th career victory would certainly be fitting.


...The Official Nissei 2009 Interleague Games web site has opened. The site will carry interviews, stats, and a number of other things to help make the interleague games a little more interesting for fans.

Interleague play begins on May 19th and ends on June 21st.

...Yuki Saito got roughed up in his start against Hosei University and once again failed to reach 20 career wins. Waseda dropped the game by the final score of 8-4.

Saito's final line:
4 IP, 90 NP, 25 BF, 6 H, 6 K, 6 BB, 6 R

Saito's next chance might come on May 2nd against Rikkyo University.
