Takeru Imamura next to start to come on 25th?

Takeru Imamura (HIR) didn't exactly have a great debut, but the Carp will be giving him another start on the 25th (vs Hanshin).

In his first Ichi-gun start of his career (8/18 vs Yakult), Imamura gave up a first inning grand slam and ultimately lasted only two innings.  He's hoping to improve upon that on the 25th and told reporters that he was hoping to get a better shot at showing people what he's really capable of doing.

Incidentally, Imamura faced Kenji Jojima at baseball clinic he attended when he was middle school and hit him.
