Chiba Lotte Marines: April 30, 2010

by on Apr.30, 2010 @ 6:26 pm, under NPB

...Tae-Gyun Kim has been on fire over his last four games: 8-for-16 with a double, 2 run scored, and 4 RBI.  He also hit a 3-run homer off Toshiya Sugiuchi in the first inning of tonight's game against the Softbank Hawks.

...Ryoji Katsuki apparently received a bunch of congratulatory e-mails and phone calls from people, including some e-mails from complete strangers, immediately after being promoted to Ichi-gun on the 29th.  On Thursday, he won his first start of his career.  And it seems the old supermarket he used to work for as a croquette cook, Sendo Ichiba (鮮ど市場), ran a sale on the 28th (croquettes 42 yen and 420 yen tai).

Katsuki was also warned by the home plate ump during the 2nd inning for double-pumping (2段モーション) during his delivery.

...Information for the Marines' poster giveaway in May have been added to the team site (only fan club members are eligible).

...The Marines have posted information about limited edition leather-made items that have been added to their online shop.  They have also added two bags to their product line-up.  Replica uniforms with the Nexon logo will also go on sale beginning 5/3.
