...Naoyuki Shimizu recorded his 100th career victory this afternoon when the Bay Stars beat the Tigers, 14-6.
...Tatsuya Shimozono and the Bay Stars didn't play a very good game yesterday. They hit into 4 double plays; Shimozono got picked off third after hitting a 1-out triple in the third; and Shimozono committed an error in the fourth that led to two unearned runs.
...With Shigeru Ushida hurt, the Bay Stars need someone to replace him (specifically, they need some one to be their set-up man). For that, they may end up turning to Hayato Terahara. The team is already checking to see how he holds up when pitching on consecutive days (down at Ni-gun). Terahara could rejoin the active roster as early as the 22nd.
