...Tetsuya Matsumoto continues to run the bases like a madman, recording two in the game for a total 7 on the year.  Matsumoto has also extended his hitting streak to 9 straight games.

Final line: 3-for-5, 4 R, RBI -> fly out to left, single to right, failed sac bunt (stolen base), single to left (stolen base), triple to right.

Final line: 2-for-3, R, 2 RBI -> single to center, home run, ground out to short.

...Shun Tono gave up 2 runs in the 2nd inning but did his job by keeping the Giants in the game over his 7 innings of work.

Final line: 7 IP, 31 BF, 133 NP, 7 H, 7 SO, 4 BB, 3 R, 3 ER.

...Marc Kroon was removed from the active roster on Sunday.  Seems he might be out for about 2 weeks.
