...The Lions finished the month of May 14-8 (5-4 at home and 9-4 on the road).
...Prior to giving up a homer to Michihiro Ogasawara in the first inning yesterday, Takayuki Kishi had gone 40 consecutive innings against the Yomiuri Giants without allowing a home run.
...Taiyo Fujita is scheduled to pitch in a Ni-gun game against Lotte tomorrow. Fujita is working his way back from a left calf injury and the Lions decided he was ok to pitch tomorrow after watching his bullpen session today.
...The Lions announced that Kenta Matsuzaka will be returning to the Ni-gun team tomorrow (6/1) after taking time away from the team with physical problems.
...The team held practice at Seibu Dome on Monday. And instead of batting practice, it seems they added agility training to their workout menu. Takeya Nakamura (right elbow pain) did not play catch with the team and Yasuyuki Kataoka (right leg injury) worked out under a different menu.
