...Kazuhisa Ishii started an Ikusei League game against Yakult on Wednesday.  His final line: 5 IP, 93 NP, 7 H,  4 BB, 6 R.  Said Ishii, "The results don't matter.  [What does matter is] how the batters were reacting to the fork.  I think it's a pitch that I'll be able to use during the season."

Ishii's first regular season start could come against the Softbank Hawks at Seibu Dome on 3/31.

...Yusei Kikuchi worked with former Lions' manager Tatsuro Hirooka for about 30 minutes after his outing on the Wednesday.  It was also decided that Kikuchi will be a part of the Ni-gun starting rotation.
