Rakuten Eagles: April 11, 2010

by on Apr.11, 2010 @ 9:46 pm, under NPB

...About 2,500 fan club members were already waiting in line at 10am on Sunday to get their hands on a Marty Brown figure.

...Hisashi Iwakuma not only won his first game of the season on Saturday, he also won the Eagles' 300th franchise victory.

...Motohiro Shima apparently kept Iwakuma from throwing too many forks during the first time around in the batting order so that he'd be able to turn to the pitch during the second time around.  Shima also knew that the Buffaloes' would be looking for the fork and instead turned to the slider and curve to set the fork up for later in the game.

...Todd Linden got a new shipment of bats from ZETT prior to Sunday's game.
