...Koji Hasebe had a rough start on Wednesday night. He gave up 4 walks and hit a batter over 3.1 innings. Pitching coach Yoshinori Saito told reporters that he had no advice to give to a pitcher that can't throw strikes. The Eagles will probably use Hasebe as a starter for his next outing.
The other pitchers also had some problems with their control, walking 4 over the remaining 4.2 innings.
