...The Giants are planning on holding a team meeting after the offense was limited to just two runs over two games against the Nippon Ham Fighters.

...Hayato Sakamoto is swinging a hot bat right now.  Over his last 5 games: 10-for-21 (.476), 5 HR, 7 R, 6 RBI.  For the month of May: 13 G, 21-for-54 (.389), 6 HR, 15 R, 11 RBI, 1.237 OPS.

...Tetsuya Matsumoto could return to the active roster as early as the 26th.  The Giants want him to play in a few more Ni-gun games before they bring him back up to Ichi-gun.
