by on May.05, 2010 @ 10:58 pm, under NPB

...Roberto Petagine took about 60 swings during Ni-gun pre-game BP and did not hit any over the fence.  He continued to work on his hitting during the game by taking cuts in the batting cage.  There is currently no set timetable for when he'll get to play in his first game.

...Nobuhiro Matsuda hit his first grand slam of his career on Tuesday.  It also happened to come on the first pitch he saw.  Matsuda is currently 10-for-23 (.435) with 3 homers and 8 RBI when swinging on the first pitch.
