by on Feb.19, 2010 @ 10:03 pm, under NPB, Spring Camp

...The Swallows take on the Chunichi Dragons in a practice game on the 20th.  Kyohei Muranaka will be the starter for the Swallows.

...Shohei Tateyama played some catch in the bullpen on Friday.  Seems he has an easier time throwing the ball when he's not throwing on flat ground.

...Shinya Miyamoto took extra batting practice on Friday for the first time during Spring camp this year.

...Additional notes from Thursday's practice game against the Samsung Lions:

Five Samsung Lions' pitchers combined for the no-hit, shutout.

Of the 27 outs recorded, 16 were on fly balls.

Atsushi Kinugawa was the lone Swallows batter that got on base via a lead-off walk in the 3rd.
