...Munenori Kawasaki extended his hitting streak to 15 games on Friday.  And while Toshiya Sugiuchi fell one strikeout short of his fourth consecutive double-digit strikeout game, he did win his fourth game of the season.

...Bum-Ho Lee got his first start since 4/11 (vs Nippon Ham) and went 0-for-4 with a rune scored.  Of the 22 games the Hawks have played this year, Lee has started 9 and entered games as a pinch-hitter for 3.

...In other news, it appears Softbank is in the process of buying out two major record labels: Victor Entertainment and Teichiku Entertainment.
