Count down to 200: 11 games remaining, 2 more hits needed.

White Sox 4 - Athletics 3
Akinori Iwamura started at third and batted sixth.  He went 0-for-3: strikeout swinging, strikeout swing, ground out to first.  Iwamura was replaced by a pinch-runner in the 9th.

Rangers 2 - Angels 1
Hideki Matsui entered the game in the 12th as a pinch-hitter and grounded out to second.  Matsui ended up being the final out of the game.

Cubs 2 - Giants 0
Kosuke Fukudome started in right and batted seventh.  He went 1-for-2: solo homer to right, strikeout swinging, walk.

Marlins 7 - Mets 5
Hisanori Takahashi entered the game in the 8th, with the Mets down 6-5, and gave up a run over an inning of work.  Final line: 1 IP, 5 BF, 3 H, 1 SO, 0 BB, 1 R, 1 ER.


Takashi Saito did not take part in pre-game practice on the 22nd.  He instead got treatment on his right shoulder at the stadium.  Saito is scheduled to start playing catch again on the 24th and assuming no problems with that, could also hold a bullpen session on the same day.


The Ichi-Meter was mentioned at Sponichi in two separate articles.
