...Alex Cabrera set a new career high of 7 RBI in one game on Thursday.  It also tied Kazuhiro Kiyohara's record for most RBI in one game during Inter-league play.  Cabrera's grand slam in the 8th inning was also the 6th of his career (his last coming on 9/28/2007).

The franchise record for most RBI in one game is 8, set by Boomer Wells in 1984.

...Takehiro Okada will likely miss about 2 weeks with a sprained left ankle.

...Orix announced on Thursday that they will begin selling retro BlueWaves merchandise beginning on Saturday.  They also announced a special promotion where fans that purchase the pro-model uniforms will also receive autographed photos from former BlueWaves' players Nobuyuki Hoshino and Yasuo Fujii.  No idea of the autographs are real or reprints.
