The commissioner's office gave Nomura a stern warning for his delay of game ejection today.

12:49am JST

Kenjiro Nomura (HIR) argued an out call at third base in the 6th inning last night and was ejected for a delay of game (play stopped for about 5 minutes).

The play: with the bases loaded and 1 out, Masahiko Morino (CHU) hit an RBI single to left.  The throw from left went to third and the ump called the runner safe.  Nomura popped out the dugout to argue that Kenta Kurihara (HIR) beat Wei-Ying Chen (CHU) to the bag.
