Games from the 25th:

Mariners 8 - Brewers 3
Ichiro Suzuki started in right and batted first.  He went 1-for-3: fly out to center, single to right, ground out to third, walk.  Ichiro also stole his 21st base of the season in the 7th.

White Sox 6 - Cubs 0
Kosuke Fukudome started in right and batted first.  He went 0-for-3: fly out to left, fly out to center, ground out to second, walk.


Akinori Iwamura did not play against triple-A Toleda on the 25th, but did take part in pre-game batting practice.

Said Iwamura, "One of the first thing the coaches down here told me was to go out and play with a smile.  So my priority is to put up some numbers while having fun.  The rest I'll leave up to the people around me to decide."


Kazuo Matsui went 0-for-3 with a strikeout against the triple-A Reno Aces on the 25th.  He started at second and batted eighth.


Daisuke Matsuzaka next start will likely come on the 30th against the Rays.


Kenshin Kawakami's next start will likely be on the 26th against the Tigers.  It seems that there's a chance that Kawakami could be demoted to the pen based on how he does.
