...Wirfin Obispo started a Ni-gun game against Nippon Ham on Thursday and gave up 5 runs on 6 hits and 3 walks.  He also struck out 5.

...Seems Kyohei Tsuchimoto had some trouble sleeping the night he gave up a walk-off 3-run homer to Terrmel Sledge.

...Ryota Wakiya was promoted to Ichi-gun on Thursday.  Wakiya suffered a fracture in his left shoulder blade during Spring camp and has been working his way back at Ni-gun.

...Yoshinobu Takahashi was held out of the starting line-up on Wednesday night for rest.

...Kyohei Tsuchimoto had held the first 8 batters he faced hitless before giving up Terrmel Sledge's 3-run slam in the bottom of the 9th on Wednesday.  This actually isn't the first time Sledge has hit Tsuchimoto: during an exhibition game on 3/21, Sledge took Tsuchimoto deep at Tokyo Dome.
