...From Sunday's game against the Yakult Swallows:

...The Bay Stars beat the Swallows, 2-1.  They stopped a 3-game losing streak.

...Takao Obana shook up the line-up a bit by starting Shingo Nonaka at short (batting lead-off) and Takeshi Hosoyamada at catcher (batting 8th).  They went a combined 0-for-5 with 1 walk in their first starts of the year.

...After being held hitless over the first 5 innings of the game, the Bay Stars finally managed to score a couple of runs on two in the 6th: an RBI double by Shuichi Murata that tied the game; and an RBI single by Terrmel Sledge to take a 2-1 lead.

...Rookie Shigeru Kaga got the start and gave up just one run in 4.2 innings of work.

Final line: 4.2 IP, 20 BF, 78 NP, 5 H, 5 SO, 1 BB, 1 R, 1 ER.

...Shintaro Ejiri tossed a perfect 8th for his first outing in a Bay Stars uniform.
