...From Sunday's game against the Orix Buffaloes:

...The Marines won the game, 10-4.  They have now won 4 games in a row.

...All 19 hits the Marines recorded were singles.  Incidentally, only one hitter in the starting line-up did not record a hit: Kazuya Fukuura - 0-for-2, R -> ground out to second, walk, strikeout.

...Takashi Ogino recorded his 6th multi-hit game of the season and his 7th stolen base of the year.

Final line: 2-for-5, 2 R, RBI -> walk, ground out to first, ground out to pitcher, single to left, RBI infield single, strikeout

...Tadahito Iguchi collected his 1,000th career NPB hit in the 6th inning off Hiroshi Kisanuki.  He's now 6 hits away from 1,500 MLB / NPB hits.

Final line: 4-for-5, 2 R, RBI -> single to left, single to left, line out to short, infield single, RBI walk, single to center

...Saburo had a big day, driving in three runs.

Final line: 2-for-5, R, 3 RBI -> 2-run single to right, RBI single to right, ground out to short, double play, fly out to left.

...Shingo Ono ran into some trouble in the second when loaded the bases with no outs (single, HBP, walk), but manged to wriggle out of the inning run-free with a little help from a line-out double play.  The Buffaloes finally managed to touch Ono for 2 runs in the 3rd in a homer and an RBI triple, but could not do anything more against him.

Final: 7 IP, 28 BF, 109 NP, 6 H, 6 SO, 1 BB, 1 HBP, 2 R, 2 ER.

...The Marines announced the addition of a few new items to their online shop on Sunday.
