...Tetsuya Yamaguchi was taken to the hospital after he was struck in the chest by a batted ball in the 3rd inning and diagnosed with a contusion (no broken bones).

...Hisayoshi Chono was held out of the starting line-up today.  He also did not take part in pre-game practice.  It seems he hurt his left hand when he dove for a ball during Saturday's game.

...The Giants' starters have yet to win a game this month.

...Takahiro Suzuki was presented with the Best Father Yellow Ribber Award for Baseball Players (ベストファーザー・イエローリボン賞 プロ野球部門) today.

...Hisayoshi Chono has hit a bit of a rough patch.  Since 5/26: 4-for-45 (.089), 1 HR, 2 R, 3 RBI, .109 / .156 / .264.

...Taishi Ota was in the starting line-up for the first time in his career last night (at first base batting 8th).  He went 0-for-3: ground out to short, ground out to short, strikeout.
