The Fighters have dropped 3 straight and are now 9 games under .500.  They are also 0-5-1 against the Marines this year, after going 18-6 against them last year. ... Nioka (HAM) batted fourth for the first time since joining the Fighters.  He did bat fourth once for the Giants (6/8/2006). ... Saburo (LOT) has now driven in at least one run in four consecutive games. ... Matoba, Imaoka, and Kawagoe are all players the Marines held tryouts for during Spring camp.
