...It seems there's a chance Hiroki Kokubo could be out until July.

...Toshiya Sugiuchi's 6-game winning streak came to an end last night against the Yakult Swallows.

...Hiroki Kokubo will be taken off the active roster today after he hurt his left shoulder during his first at bat in last night's game against the Yakult Swallows.  Said Kokubo, "It might take a little time before I can start swinging the bat again.  Ten days might not be enough time."

Kokubo had acupuncture treatment for his neck on Monday and it seems the Hawks feel the loosened muscles from the treatment may have played a part in his shoulder injury.

...The Hawks announced that they will be placing Ganbaro Miyazaki (がんばろう宮崎) stickers to the side of their helmets beginning on 6/4 through to the end of Inter-league play.
