...Kazuhisa Ishii will likely get tonight's start against the Yokohama Bay Stars.

...It seems Takeya Nakamura will be held out of the starting line-up tonight due to right elbow pains.  The Lions started Nakamura at first on Sunday to lessen the strain on his elbow, but it appears the pain was affecting his hitting.  Takumi Kuriyama will likely slide into the four-hole in place of Nakamura.
