...Kazuhisa Ishii has made 12 starts this year, but he'll likely be making his first night start tonight against the Yakult Swallows.  Said Ishii, "If I don't win tonight, people will begin to think I can only win in the afternoon.  I want night starts too."

...The earliest Kimiyasu Kudo could be back on the active roster is probably around the end of Inter-league series play.  Kudo is currently scheduled to pitch on back-to-back days against Ni-gun Rakuten beginning on the 8th.  Said pitching coach Tetsuya Shiozaki, "We're thinking at the end of Inter-league play at the earlier.  Personally, I think it'll take him at least another month."

...The Lions have posted an event schedule for Family Weekend (ファミリーウィークエンド).  Family Weekend will take place during a 3-game series against the Softbank Hawks (6/18, 19, and 20) and will have a Father's Day theme.
