...The Giants set a new franchise record tonight when they gave up double-digit hits in their 9th straight game.

...Hayato Sakamoto took over 30 minutes of grounders at short during practice yesterday with Tatsunori Hara looking on.

...Wirfin Obispo joined the Ichi-gun team for practice yesterday.  He'll likely take over Kentaro Nishimura's spot in the rotation.  Seems Hara also had Obispo take some BP as well (the only pitcher he had take BP).

...Shun Tono's next start will likely be on 8 days rest against the Hanshin Tigers on the 13th.  Obispo will probably take what would have been Tono's next start on the 11th (vs Chunichi).
