...Hayato Sakamoto, Tetsuya Matsumoto, and Hisayoshi Chono all worked out on their day off today.  All three of them struggled during the recent Chunchi Dragons series: Sakamoto went 1-for-13; Matsumoto went 1-for-10; and Chono went 1-for-11.

...Tough stretch for the Giants right now: they lost their fourth game in a row yesterday and their pitching staff has now allowed double-digit hits in 11 straight games.

Over that 11 game stretch:

...the Giants are 4-7; the starters have gone 2-6...

...have been outscored 71-55...

...Dicky Gonzalez is the only starter to pitch 6 or more innings (6 inning on 7/2 and 6.1 inning on 7/9)...

...Shun Tono is the only starter to record wins (a victory on 6/29 with a 5 inning outing and a victory on 7/4 with a 5.2 inning outing)...
