...Don't look now, but the Bay Stars recorded their fourth consecutive series win.

...Hayato Terahara was taken off the active roster on Wednesday due to what appears to be inflammation of the muscles near the right elbow.  According to the chief trainer, this is the same injury Terahara had last year in September.  The team is hoping for a much speedier recovery than the 2 months that were required last year.

...Shotaro Ide recorded his second walk-off hit on Tuesday.  His first walk-off hit came on 6/25/2005 against the Nippon Ham Fighters.

As a going away present, Munenori Kawasaki gave Ide a towel with the words "1,000 HITS!" on it.  Kawasaki wished Ide luck and told Ide to shoot for 1,000 hits.
