Hanshin Tigers: April 21, 2010

by on Apr.21, 2010 @ 3:57 pm, under NPB

...Tomoaki Kanemoto's "replacement" in left, Keisuke Kano, went 1-for-4 with a 3-run homer on Tuesday.

...Kanemoto's consecutive games streak is still alive and well (now at 1,639): Kanemoto entered the game in the 6th as a pinch-hitter and flied out to center.

...Tsuyoshi Shimoyanagi managed to toss a shutout on Tuesday, despite giving up 8 hits and 2 walks.

...It appears the Tigers will be using Jason Standridge out of the pen.  His start on the 21st was apparently scrapped so that he can start working out of the bullpen in relief.

Standridge's Ni-gun numbers so far:

G W L Sv CG ShO WPCT BF IP H HR BB IBB HBP SO WP BK R ER ERA
2 0 1 0 0 0 .000 35 8 8 1 3 0 0 3 2 0 4 2 2.25

...The Tigers have hit at least one home run in each of their last 10 games (a total 16 home runs).  The last time the Tigers did that was back in 2003.
