...Shinji Takahashi was held out of the starting line-up today.  Seems he's still feeling a bit light-headed after getting beaned in the head last night.

...As mentioned yesterday, Shinji Takahashi was hit in the head by a pitch during last night's game against the Seibu Lions.  Hospital tests did not find anything wrong with Takahashi.  Taiyo Fujita, the pitcher that his Takahashi, offered his apologies to the Fighters after the game.

...The Fighters made it back to .500 with the 9-7 victory over the Seibu Lion last night.  They were under .500 by as many as 14 games with an 11-25-1 record on 5/4.  Since then they have gone 26-12-1.
