...Casey Fossum gave up 7 runs (all earned) over 2.1 innings work today.  Since his second victory of the season on 5/15, Fossum has allowed 28 runs (27 earned) over 29 innings (7 starts).

And it seems after today's start, the Tigers decided that they'll be taking Fossum of the active roster.

...Matt Murton hitting streak ended at 18 games with an 0-for-5 day.

...Matt Murton managed to extend his hitting streak to 18 games when he picked up a double in his final at bat in the top of the 9th inning last night.  He's 0-for-3 in today's game so far.

...Kazuhito Futagami will be making his "official" Ni-gun debut on the 8th against Hiroshima (he has been pitching in Ikusei games up until now).
