The Ichi-gun roster has the day off today.


Yesterday's intra-squad game:

The whites beat the reds, 6-5 (6 innings).

Ryo Sakakibara gave up 2 unearned runs on 4 hits over 2 innings of work for the whites.

Dai-Kang Yang (Yoh) started in right and batted 2nd for the whites.  He hit a 3-run homer toward right-center off Wirfin Obispo in the 3rd.

Sho Nakata was picked off second in the 5th inning.  Said Nakata, "I forgot where I was and got too far away from the base.  I learned something important.  I'm doing pretty well with the bat and I'd like to do the same for my fielding and base-running."


Sho Nakata did some weight-lifting for about 30 minutes during his day off today.
