...Hideaki Wakui will probably be starting today's game against the Hanshin Tigers at Koshien Stadium.

...Kazuhisa Ishii won his first game at Koshien Stadium last night since 7/29/2006.  It was also his 29th career victory against the Hanshin Tigers and it was the first time he pitched against them since 9/23/2007.

Ishii also threw his fork quite a bit, especially to right-handed batters.  Said Ishii, "[Glavine] told me to aim for a spot slightly lower than where the catcher is setting up his glove, by about the size of a ball perhaps, when throwing the fork."

Incidentally, Ishii's wife, Ayako Kisa, celebrated her 39th birthday last night.

...Pastel's Lions Souvenir Sweets line-up for 6/1, 7/13, and 7/27 have been posted to the Lions official site.
