Eri Yoshida's second start will come on 12th against the Yuma Scorpions at Nettleton Stadium.  In preparation for that start, Yoshida has been tossing BP since her last start on 5/29.  She also threw a bullpen session and told reporters that she has been working on using more of her arm when throwing her knuckleball.

It seems Yoshida has also won a spot in the rotation.  Said Garry Templeton, "It's important for her to continue to attack batters with her knuckleball.  For now, she'll have a start every 5th day as part of the rotation."

The first 1,000 fans to the game on the 12th will receive a free autographed photo of Yoshida (part of Eri Yoshida Night).
