This post will be updated throughout the day.


Yesterday's practice game against the Nippon Ham Fighters:

Takahiro Iwamoto started in left and batted 8th.  Iwamoto hit an RBI triple to right-center in the 4th and a homer to right in the 9th (1 out off Masaru Nakamura).  He finished the day 2-for-4 with 2 RBI.

Jun Hirose started in left and batted 5th.  He hit a homer out to left-center in 4th inning off Keisuke Tanimoto.  He's also used his new 34-inch bat (0.5 inches longer than last year).


The Carp closed out their Okinawa leg of spring camp today.  They will now head to Nichinan, Miyazaki to continue their training.  The team will have the day off tomorrow and the 4th block of camp will begin on the 15th.

Kenjiro Nomura told reporters that he couldn't grade the first leg of spring camp, but was overly satisfied with the results.
