...From Thursday's game against the Chiba Lotte Marines:

...Winds were recorded up to 12 m/s.

...The Eagles did have a chance for a comeback in the 9th, when they got runners on second and third with  2 out, but Teppei struck out to end the game.

...Darrell Rasner had a pretty good beginning to his start, holding the Marines to just 1 hit over the games'f first three inning.  He appeared to lose his rhythm in the 4th after walking two of the first three batters he faced.

Rasner's final line: 5.1 IP, 24 BF, 102 NP, 5 H, 2 SO, 4 BB, 3 R, 3 ER.

...Jin Nakatani will likely be out 3-4 weeks.  He was diagnosed with a bruise on his right gastrocnemius muscle.

...I also forgot to mention that Koji Aoyama was diagnosed with an injury to his left linea alba (abdomen).
