...Norihiro Nakamura missed a hit-and-run sign in the fourth inning with Daisuke Kusano at first.  End result:  Kusano ran, was thrown out at second, and the play shows up in the box score as a caught stealing.

"Nagai gave us a chance to win.  The offense has to come through [in these types of games]."
