Stults has second bad start in a row

It appears Dioni Soriano complained of elbow pains after a Ni-gun start on the 15th against Softbank.  And because of that, it seems the Carp might be stuck with keeping Eric Stults at Ichi-gun for the time being despite two straight bad starts in a row: 8 earned runs allowed over 6 innings on 8/12 vs Hanshin and 6 earned runs allowed over 4 innings on 8/19 vs Yakult.

Up until now, the team had been swapping Soriano and Stults as needed.  But until Hiroshima knows for sure that Soriano is ok, they probably won't risk sending him up to Ichi-gun.
