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

Satoshi Nagai gave up 2 runs over 4 innings of work.

Wataru Karashima tossed a perfect inning in relief (strike out, ground out, and fly out).  He hit 140km/h.

The Eagles offense was held to just 4 hits.

The Lions beat the Eagles, 3-1.

...Teppei started in right against the Yakult Swallows (practice game) on the Wednesday and made two solid plays out in right.  His conversion to right appears to be going well.

...Additional notes from Wednesday's practice game against the Yakult Swallows:

Juan Morillo tossed a shutout inning in relief.  He actually walked the first batter, but did a good job keeping him close with a quick delivery to home plate.  Morillo ended up facing 4 batters and throwing 15 pitches (7 over 150km/h).

Ryo Hijirisawa had three hits.

Andy Phillips had two hits in all.
