Bay Stars first to lose 60 games in the NPB

by on Aug.06, 2010 @ 2:54 pm, under NPB

The Bay Stars were shutout, 4-0, at the hands of the Hiroshima Carp last night.  The loss made Yokohama the first 60-game loser in the NPB this season.

And speaking of losing, Norifumi Nishimura was ejected from last night's game when an argument on a safe / out play at first culminated in Nishimura making contact with the first base ump.  Must be from the frustration of losing 7 straight games (14 straight at Kleenex Stadium) and dropping into fourth place.

Hope it was worth it because Nishimura was slapped with a 150,000 yen fine and a warning from the commissioner's office.
