This post will be updated throughout the day.


Today's exhibition game against the Yomiuri Giants:

The game ended in a 1-1 tie.


Masafumi Togano threw about 40 pitches in the bullpen yesterday.  The two aces of the staff also tossed bullpen sessions: Masahiro Tanaka threw 60 and Hisashi Iwakuma threw 90.

FYI: Tanaka threw a total 862 pitches during spring camp.  He also did not throw the fork (he told reporters he wasn't going to use it this year) and instead worked on a split in the 140km/h range.


Through 5 intra-squad games, the Eagles attempted 26 stolen and succeeded 16 times.
