...Yu Darvish will likey get tomorrow's start against the Yomiuri Giants. Darvish is still looking for his first Inter-league victory this year. He's also 0-2 over his last four starts -- that's seven runs (four earned) over 31 innings. What's more, the offense has only managed to score 4 fours over those four starts.
...The Fighters plan of attack against Shugo Fujii: get him to throw a lot of pitches because he tends to fall apart around the 100 pitch mark.
