by on Apr.14, 2010 @ 8:12 pm, under NPB

...As of this posting, Matt Murton is 0-for-4 in Wednesday's game.  His streak of getting on base in 15 straight games is in jeopardy of ending.

...Kyuji Fujikawa set a new franchise record for saves with his 131st career save on Tuesday (he had been in a first place tie with Kazuyuki Yamamoto).

...Takashi Toritani's home run on Tuesday was his first of the year (hit in his 63rd plate appearance).

...Takahiro Arai hit a solo homer on Tuesday.  He had gone 25 plate appearances (6 games) in between his first and second home runs of the season.

...The Tigers hit a total 5 home runs on Tuesday.  The last time they did that: 8/8/2004, also against the Yomiuri Giants.

...Dankan makes mention of the rumor of how the Giants allegedly switch the direction of the fans to face the outfield when their players are up to bat.
