...The Marines dropped their game today, 19-1. This marked the third straight game in which the Marines allowed double-digit runs (a total 39 runs over three games).
...Yuji Yoshimi will likely get tonight's start against Toshiya Sugiuchi and the Softbank Hawks. Yoshimi will be working on stopping a 3-game losing streak. But he has his work cut out for him -- the Marines are 3-16 against the Hawks' ace (running total) and the last time they beat him at home was on 7/18/2003.
