Both Hisayoshi Chono and Yoshinobu Takahashi left tonight's game against the Yakult Swallows early:

Chono started in center and batted sixt - was replaced on defense in the 4th due to tightness in his lower back.

Takahashi started in right batted fifth - left in the 4th with 2 outs after hitting the wall in right while chasing down a fly ball hit by Ryoji Aikawa.  Takashi left while holding his left flank area.  He was examined at the hospital and no structural damage was found in the bones.

UPDATE 4/27 @ 10:05am - Quick update: Chono did not go the hospital yesterday and instead got ice treatment.  Takahashi did go to the hospital for x-rays; the results came back negative for any problems.
