Today's intra-squad game:

Atsushi Kobayashi (3rd round) was a starter and gave up 8 runs on 7 hits over 2 innings of work (he faced a total 15 batters).  4 of the 8 runs came on a grand slam to left by Saburo in the 2nd.

Tadahito Iguchi went 2-for-3 with 2 RBI, including a 2-run homer to left in the first inning.


Saburo has been wearing a special t-shirt SSK manufactures that hash magnets embedded into the fabric.  The magnet apparently help improve the flow of blow in order to keep muscles loose.
