Notes

Saito and Tanaka met before the game for a brief chat (about 3 minutes).  Darvish was actually instrumental in the meet-up -- he first took Saito to meet Senichi Hoshino.  The two then walked out toward the outfield to do some running while Tanaka finished playing catch.  As Tanaka finished, Darvish brought Saito over and the three spoke together for about 2 minutes.  After that, Darvish stepped away to give the two some time to catch-up (about a minute).

HAM: Hoffpauir's homer in the 2nd was his fourth in as many games (second in as many exhibition games). ... Nakata now has 6 HRs in 10 spring games.  Seems Nakata may have also lost about 4kg since the start of spring camp (94kg to 90kg).

RAK: Kim topped out at 138km/h -- his fastball registered 137km/h on the radar run while his sinker hit 138km/h.
