hmm... I wonder if the team is going to fine him...

...Tony Blanco forgot his uniform (42) yesterday and had to borrow a uniform (96). The borrowed uniform belonged to the bullpen catcher, Keiji Miwa. Lucky for Blanco that he was able to find someone with a similar build.


...Minoru Iwata tossed a start against Ni-gun Softbank on Saturday. He went 7 innings and gave up 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits; he also struck out 5. Tomoyuki Kubota also made an appearance in the game: 1 IP, 1 H, 0 R.


...Hichori Morimoto earned his national FA rights on the 30th.


...The Buffaloes announced that Alex Cabrera will be returning to Japan on the 31st.


...The Rakuten - Hiroshima game that was rained out on Saturday has been re-scheduled for Monday, June 1st at 6pm at Kleenex Stadium.

...Yuki Saito tossed a complete game against Keio University on Saturday. He picked up his 4th win of the season and the 22nd of his career.

9 IP, 139 NP, 36 BF, 6 H, 10 K, 4 BB, 1 R
