...The Bay Stars were shutout last night for the 10th time this season. They also recorded their 6th walk-off loss of the season.
...Shuichi Murata has four multi-hit games under his belt so far this month, but he's also been held hitless in six games. His latest mini-slump has him at 0 hits over his last 10 trips to the plate (that includes 4 strikeouts). Regardless of the inconsistency, it seems the Bay Stars don't have any plans of moving Murata from his clean-up spot in the line-up, even versus teams he hasn't played well against this season (like their current opponent, the Chunichi Dragons).
...Takehiro Ishikawa stole three bases last night and now leads the CL in stolen bases with 29.
