From Wednesday's game against the Hiroshima Carp:

...The Swallows beat the Carp, 7-1.

...Big night for Jamie D'Antona as he goes 4-for-4 with 6 RBI.  His big blow, a grand slam in the 6th inning off Tomohiro Umetsu.

...Shohei Tateyama tossed a solid 8 innings, holding the Carp to just 6 hits (all singles) and one run (unearned).  And Tateyama was able able to reach for a little something extra each time he got into trouble: with runners on first and third and 2 out in the 4th, he struck out Jun Hirose; with runners on first and second and no out in the 6th, he struck out the next three batters in a row (Kenta Kurihara, Masafumi Suenaga, and Justin Huber); and with a runner on third and 2 out in the 8th, he got Kurihara to ground out to second to end the inning.

...Kazuki Fukuchi injured his left calf on defense in the top of the 2nd and was removed from the game after his at bat in the 2nd.  He will have his calf checked out at a hospital on Thursday.
