...Takashi Ogino was held out of the starting line-up today after he tweaked his right knee while trying to steal a base in last night's game.  Ogino was at the stadium today in order to get treatment on the knee.  The club is hoping that it isn't a serious injury.

...Yoshihisa Naruse notched his 6th win of the year.  He also surrendered another home run (a 2-run shot), giving him 17 on the year and at least one home run in each of his last 5 starts.  The home run tracker hasn't been updated with last night's stats, but you can easily see he's been a little lucky -- including last night's 2-run homer, Naruse has only given up two 2-run homers this year, the rest have been solo shots.  At some point though, he's going to get burned, and he's going to get burned hard.  That is, if he continues to surrender the home runs.
