...8-15-0 (5th place): The Eagles were swept by the Seibu Lions and then dropped two of three against the Softbank Hawks.  Masahiro Tanaka tossed his fourth complete game of the season on Sunday in an attempt to give the Eagles two consecutive wins, but Nobuhiro Matsuda crashed the party with a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the 9th.  The Eagles also lost Todd Linden this past week with a thumb injury.

...Yosuke Takasu is 9-for-21 with 6 RBI.

...Satoshi Nagai will be making the start against the Chiba Lotte Marines on Tuesday at Tokyo Dome.  On Monday, he held a bullpen session at Tokyo Dome.

...Non-reserved infield and second level tickets to Tuesday's game are sold out.  Tickets for outfield seats are also apparently going quickly.
