...The Giants are currently on pace to win 100 games this year.

...Shugo Fujii finally recorded the first victory of his Giants' career on Tuesday night against the Chunichi Dragons.  He told reporters after the game that he was glad the Giants were on his side.

...Tetsuya Matsumoto spent time on the stationary bike and doing weight training exercises on Tuesday.  The earliest he can return to the active roster is on 5/8.

...Itaru Hashimoto's first Ichi-gun game: defensive replacement in left in the 9th on Tuesday.  Prior to the game, Hashimoto took grounders hit by Tatsunori Hara at third base.  Hashimoto was apparently a bit surprised since he never played third before.
