Trio of Obispo, Romero, and Micheal secures a shutout

Wirfin Obispo, Levi Romero, and Micheal Nakamura combined to shutout the Hiroshima Carp last night.  Sanspo is claiming that they became the first foreign trio in franchise history to toss a shutout.  I suppose that all depends on how you classify Nakamura -- he's half Japanese and half Australian.

Incidentally, that last foreign duo to combine for a shutout: Seth Greisinger and Marc Kroon back on 4/17/2008 (vs Chunichi).

In other news:

Greisinger threw 33 pitches in the bullpen yesterday in preparation for an upcoming start.  The Giants game against the Hanshin Tigers on 8/3 still seems most likely.
