Today's intra-squad game:

Chan Ho Park started for the whites and tossed two shutout innings (he faced 8 batters, threw 20 pitches, topped out at 138km/h, and allowed 3 hits).  There was also a balk call again him -- after the game, Park spoke to the umpire to find out exactly what he did wrong.

Shunta Goto (1st round) went 3-for-3 and stole a base.

Donald Brandt was at Ichi-gun camp today for his tryout and tossed 31 pitches in the bullpen under the watchful eyes of the coaches.  Akinobu Okada told reporters that he plans on using Brandt (for an inning of relief) during an intra-squad game that's scheduled on the day of his tryouts (2/17) .
