...On Tuesday: Hirotoshi Masui picked up his first victory of his career and becomes the first Pacific League rookie pitcher to win a game this season; Atsunori Inaba made a heads up play to keep the win intact for Masui by throwing out a runner at first on what appeared to be a single into right; Yoshinori Tateyama recorded his first save since 9/262008 (vs Seibu Lions).

...Kazuya Murata was diagnosed with a fracture in his right wrist area on Tuesday.  He is expected to miss at least four weeks.  Murata was working out at Ni-gun Kamagaya on the 25th when he took a ball of his right wrist during practice.

...The Fighters' cameraman that continued to work with the team despite knowing he had tuberculosis, has been dismissed by the company that employed him (backdated to the 23rd).
