Darrell Rasner started the game and tossed 2 perfect innings.

Teppei went 2-for-2 with an RBI.

Yesterday's practice game against the Samsung Lions:

The game ended in a 1-1 tie.

Ryohei Isaka started the game and threw 3 shutout innings.  He also gave up 2 hits.

In addition to giving up a run over 3 innings of work, Kenji Tomura also struck out 5.


Senichi Hoshino was upset that they finished another game in a 1-1 tie and suggested players (primarily the younger players) swing the bat more.  And so when the players returned to the team hotel, some of the position players headed to the parking lot in order to work on their swings.
