Shun Tono has not done very well over his last three starts:
4/26 vs Yakult: 6.2 IP, 8 H, 2 BB, 6 R, 4 ER
5/3 vs Hanshin: 6 IP, 9 H (4 HR), 0 BB, 6 R, 6 ER
5/10 vs Yokohama: 5.2 IP, 6 H, 3 BB, 7 R, 3 ER
Tatsunori Hara wasn't too happy about Tono's latest start and told reporters he didn't want to answer any questions about Tono's immediate future because he might say something he'll regret later on.
Bryan Bullington will likely start tomorrow's game against the Hanshin Tigers after his start today was rained out.

Shuichi Murata recorded a triple in tonight's game against the Yomiuri Giants. It was his first triple since 7/7/2009.
