...Atsushi Fujimoto was given a stern warning and fined 200,000 yen for getting ejected from Saturday's game against the Yokohama Bay Stars for arguing a close play at home plate.  Fujimoto also made physical contact with the ump, making things slightly worse for him.

Said Fujimoto, "I thought I was 100% safe.  But getting physical was not the right thing to do.  I apologize."

...With his victory on Saturday, Masato Nakazawa improved to 3-0 over 5 starts.  He is the first Yakult rookie to go 3-0 since Makoto Fujiwara in 1969.

...Tsuyoshi Ueda got his first start of his career on Saturday against the Yokohama Bay Stars and went 2-for-3.
