Kazuhisa Ishii to start tonight and on the 20th?

Kazuhisa Ishii (SEI) will get tonight's start against the Orix Buffaloes (seems he might be facing Chihiro Kaneko, should be a fun game to watch).  And there's a chance that he could get another start on the 20th against the Softbank Hawks.  Depending on how the team does, there's a chance Ishii could be on the mound for the league clinching game.

In other team-related news:

Takayuki Kishi is slated for a rehab start against Ni-gun Rakuten today.  Since this will be his first start in about two months, he'll have a pitch count limit of 50.

UPDATE on Kishi's start (11:19pm): Kishi gave up a run on 2 hits hits over 3 innings of work.  He also struck out 5 and threw a total 45 pitches.  Kishi could rejoin the active roster as early as the 23rd (final home game of the year).
