The game between the Nippon Ham Fighters and Orix Buffaloes was canceled due to rain tonight, but not before the two teams were able to play partway through the first inning.

The starting line-up for the Fighters did not include Shinji Takahashi.  Takahashi batted a ball off his left foot last night.  He took part in pre-game batting practice today, but the team wanted to play it safe and gave him the night off.
