Kazuya Fukuura (LOT) and Naoki Matoba (LOT) left last night's game early due to injuries.  Fukuura injured his right foot (instep) after running into a base-runner in the first inning.  Matoba injured his left index finger when Katsuki Yamazaki's bat hit his glove in the 3rd inning (catcher's interference).

Both players were taken to the hospital and both were cleared of any structural damage to bones.
