...Takahiro Mahara recorded his 138th career save on Tuesday in a game against the Rakuten Eagles.  That's good for 10th on the All-time Saves list.

...Tadashi Settsu appeared in his 17th game (out of a possible 31 games) of the season.  That good for first in either league.

...Because the Hawks Ni-gun game was rained out on Tuesday, both Hiroki Yamada and Sho Iwasaki were scheduled to pitch in the same Ni-gun game today (Iwasaki as a starter, Yamada as a reliever).

...Munenori Kawasaki told fans it was his mother's birthday during his hero interview after Tuesday's game against the Rakuten Eagles and dedicated his home run to her.  It should be noted that his mother's birthday was actually on the 25th.

...The Hawks will be handing out Victory Flags to every fan that attends their game against the Rakuten Eagles on Thursday (4/28).

...The Hawks have named 5/15 and 5/16 (road games at Jingu Stadium against the Yakult Swallows) Visiting Fan Appreciate Day and will be handing out pin badges to the first 1,000 Club Hawks members that arrive at the park.
