Yesterday's intra-squad game:

Teppei went 1-for-3 with a stolen base.

Suguru Ino hit a 2-run homer to left-center off Takashi Kawaii in the 2nd inning.  Ino didn't have a very positive outing on the 16th when he was behind the plate when Satoshi Nagai allowed 5 runs in the first inning.  He was also promptly yanked from the game by Senichi Hoshino (he was no longer in the line-up in the 2nd inning).

The Eagles closed out the Kumejima portion of spring camp today after about 3 hours of practice.  They will now travel to Naha for their practice game against the Yomiuri Giants tomorrow.

Manabu Mima (2nd round) found out that he made the exhibition game season roster yesterday.
