...Masanori Ishikawa will have another shot to end his 6-game losing streak as he'll be starting tomorrow's game against the Orix Buffaloes.

...Seems club president / acting owner Tadashi Suzuki still firmly believes that Shigeru Takada can turn things around this season and offered his full support.  "I'm not going to go over the results with him at this point," said Suzuki.  "I will continue to fully support Takada.  He will, I'm sure, turn this season around."

Suzuki added, "I'd like to bring someone in to help him out.  All I want is for the team to play as hard as they can and show the fans a good time.  I'm not thinking about visiting HR at all right now.  I just want them to play all out."

...The Swallows announced on Tuesday that they'll be hosting Nomura Fudosan Proud Special Nighter (野村不動産プラウドスペシャルナイター) on 5/16 (vs Softbank Hawks).  Fans that fill out a questionnaire will be eligible to win various prizes that includes an autographed replica jersey, autographed boards, and various other items.

...Yakult fans selected Masato Nakaza as the MIP for March / April.
