...From Saturday's game against the Yomiuri Giants:

...Yoshinori Sato recorded his first victory against the Giants since 7/4/2009.  He topped out at 153km/h.

Sato's final line: 8 IP, 31 BF, 135 NP, 5 H, 5 SO, 1 BB, 1 HBP, 1 R, 1 ER.

...Aaron Guiel was happy when the umps ruled his hit in the 9th a home run after checking over the footage.

While this may be the first official time video replay was used to judge a home run, video replay was used in an exhibition game on the 21st (vs Yokohama Bay Stars).  The call in the game turned a double in to a home run (Terrmel Sledge).

...Jamie D'Antona likely had one of his best offensive days with the Swallows on Saturday: 3-for-4, 2 HR, 2 R, 5 RBI.
