Yakult Swallows: June 13, 2010

by on Jun.13, 2010 @ 11:29 am, under NPB

...Despite giving up a hit in every inning he pitched, Masanori Ishikawa still managed to keep the Rakuten Eagles to just one run over 6 innings for his second victory of the year.

...The Swallows won their third game in a row yesterday.  One more win and they tie the season high of four games, set between 3/27 and 3/31.

...Josh Whitesell started working out yesterday -- he took some fielding practice in left and at first and also took some BP.  Said Whitesell, "I'm a first baseman by trade, but I'll play wherever I'm needed.  I also want to show [them] I can hit."  Depending on how he progresses, Whitesell could be placed on the active roster as early as the 25th (vs the Hanshin Tigers).
