Games from the 28th:
Matsui is now 5 hits away from his 2,500th NPB + MLB hit.
Cubs 5 - Padres 2
Kosuke Fukudome started in right and batted first. He went 1-for-5: fly out to left, strike out swinging, RBI double to left-center, fly out to right, ground out to second.
Takashi Saito had his right shoulder checked out on the 28th and was apparently told that there were no problems. As such, Saito started playing catch again in order to check on how his shoulder was feeling. Assuming no problems, Saito will get to pitch in the bullpen on the 29th.
