Chunichi Dragons

With today's rain out, the Dragons may end up having to play 14 games over a 13-day period in October (10/4 and 10/16).

Hanshin Tigers

If tomorrow's game gets rain out, it'll be the first 3-game series at Koshien Stadium to be rained out since 1995 (Yokohama between 7/4 - 7/6).


Daiki Enokida got pointers on how to throw a knuckle-curve from Jason Standridge.  But Standrige apparently told Enokida that he didn't need to the pitch because he already had a good slider.

Hiroshima Carp

Jumpei Shinoda is scheduled to start tomorrow's game against the Hanshin Tigers.

Yokohama Bay Stars

Shun Yamaguchi has not allowed a run in 10 straight outings since the start of the season: 9.2 IP, 1-0, 7 Sv, 5 H, 10 SO, 3 BB, 1 HBP, 0 R, 0 ER, 0.83 WHIP.
