...Yuta Omine tossed about 70 pitches in the bullpen earlier today in preparation for his start on the 30th against the Softbank Hawks. Omine will be going for his first start since 6/10 (vs Hiroshima) and his first victory since 4/14 (vs Nippon Ham).
...Shunsuke Watanabe's next start will likely be on 7/1 against the Softbank Hawks. It was only the second time this year that Watanabe threw off the Chiba Marine Stadium mound in between starts (the first time was on 5/28).
...The Marines were swept 3-0 for the first time this season, courtesy the Nippon Ham Fighters. The series sweep also means the Marines will finish the month with a losing record for the first time this season -- with two game remaining, they are currently 6-10-1.
...The Marines will begin selling tickets for August home games beginning on 7/1.
