Today's practice game against the Yakult Swallows:

The Swallows beat the Bay Stars, 3-1.

Yoshitomo Tsutsugo started at third and batted 5th.  He went 1-for-3 with an RBI.


Naoyuki Shimizu took a day off from throwing today after tossing 201 pitches in the bullpen on the 16th and 80 pitches yesterday.


Hichori Morimoto, Terrmel Sledge, and Shuichi Murata chatted yesterday morning about how they wanted everyone to play aggressively as a team, regardless of the outcome.  Morimoto also told reporters he plans on holding Sledge to his word about shaving his head if the team manages to sweep the Yomiuri Giants during their first 3-game series.


Sledge took 30 swings of the bat during BP yesterday and hit 6 over the fence.
