Both Shinnosuke Abe and Micheal Nakamura came out of the game in the 6th inning after getting hit by batted balls.
With Seiichi Uchikawa up to bat, Abe took a foul ball of his right calf and was replaced by Kazunari Tsuruoka. In the same at bat, Uchikawa hit a ball back to the mound that Nakamura took off his right foot. As a precaution, he was taken out of the game and replaced by Tetsuya Yamaguchi.
Both players received ice-packs for their bruises and the team will wait to see how they're feeling on Saturday before deciding what to do next.
