Yokohama Bay Stars: April 7, 2010

From Wednesday's game against the Chunichi Dragons:

...The Bay Stars were shutout by the Dragons, 2-0.  They are now 1-5 in April.

...The offense did have a couple of chances to score runs against Takashi Ogasawara (1st inning: runners on first and third, no out; and 5th inning, runners on second and third, 1 out), but failed to come through with the big hit.  Yokohama had a chance to do some damage in the 9th against Hitoki Iwase, but pinch-hitter Yuki Yoshimura and Yuta Saito struck out for the final two outs of the game.

...Stephen Randolph had a perfect game going through 4 innings, but a lead-off double to Tony Blanco in the 5th put a stop to that.  Randolph pitched into and out of jams in both the 5th (bases loaded, 2 out) and 6th (bases loaded, 2 out) but managed to escape unscathed.  It was ultimately one hit in the 7th, a solo shot by Motonobu Tanishige, that sunk Randolph's night.

...Full boxscores are here.
