...Kenji Otonari was scheduled to pitch last night, but with the rain-out, he'll be making that start tonight against the Orix Buffaloes.  Tsuyoshi Wada and Yao-Hsun Yang will likely follow after that.

...Hiroki Kokubo will be donating 900,000 yen to foot and mouth disease relief efforts in Miyazaki through a fan site called K'Project.  200 fans at the site donated 500 yen a piece for a total 100,000 yen.  Kokubo stepped in an volunteered to donate 900,000 yen to make K'Projects total donation 1M yen.

Kokubo is also just 5 homers away from 400.
