Shota Koike went 2-for-3 with an RBI.

Tomoya Satozaki went 1-for-3.


Yuki Karakawa threw 44 pitches in the bullpen today in preparation for an upcoming intra-squad game.


Yoshihisa Naruse threw 22 pitches while facing 8 batters during situational BP yesterday and gave up 2 hits.  He also got Ikuhiro Kiyota to strike out looking and Takeshi Kanazawa to strikeout swinging.

After the outing, Naruse headed to the bullpen and threw an additional 186 pitches.  All told, he threw a total 208 pitches (BP + bullpen) yesterday.  It was the third time this spring Naruse threw 200+ pitches in one day.


Naotaka Takehara was back to working out with the rest of the team yesterday.  Takehara had been working under a separate training menu since the 13th due to tightness in his left hamstring.
