Just wanted to post a few quick notes before I head out...
...Shohei Tateyama goes for his 13th consecutive victory tonight against the Rakuten Eagles.
...Kan Ohtake will get a special plate commemorating his 43.2 consecutive scoreless innings. The plate will put up somewhere out in the left area of Mazda Stadium.
...Sho Nakata will likely be on the bench for the upcoming series against the Yomiuri Giants.
...Taishi Ohta mashed his 5th home run of the season on Thursday against Ni-gun Lotte. He went 1-for-5 in the game: home run, ground out, line out, ground out, strike out swinging.
