Today's intra-squad practice game:

The white beat the reds, 4-3 (6 inning game).

Shingo Takeyama was the starting catcher for the reds and batted 7th.  He hit a homer in the 2nd inning with a runner on third and 1 out.

Sho Aranami (3rd round) started in center and batted lead-off.  He started the game with a triple to right-center in his first at bat and came around to score a sac fly by Yuki Yoshimura.


Daisuke Miura threw 155 pitches in the bullpen today (including his off-speeds, like the curve, slider, fork, and shuto).  He told reporters he wasn't planning on throwing so many pitches, but ended up doing so because he was taking his time checking on each of his pitches.  Miura also had someone stand in the batter's box partway through the session.

Miura is currently scheduled to make an appearance during situational BP tomorrow.
