...Bill Murphy will likely start tomorrow's game against the Seibu Lions.
...The Marines have been shutout 7 times this year, 4 of which have come this month. The Marines have also not collected a timely hit since the 2nd inning of a Buffaloes' game on 7/13. That's a span of 32 innings. Incidentally, the three runs the Marines scored on the 15th against the Buffaloes scored on two sac flies and an error.
