by on Jun.03, 2011 @ 4:35 pm, under NPB

Hanshin Tigers

The Tigers have not scored a run in 20 innings (go back to the 8th inning against the Rakuten Eagles on 5/29).


Yuya Ando started a Ni-gun game against Orix today and gave up a run on 6 hits over 7 innings of work.  He also threw 105 pitches, the most since he hurt his right shoulder.

Hiroshima Carp

Eishin Soyogi spent about 2 hours working out at Mazda Stadium yesterday (the team had the day off since it was travel day).  Soyogi has not done well during Inter-league play: 6-for-42 with 11 strikeouts, 2 walks, and a slash line of .143 / .200 / .143.

Yokohama Bay Stars

Norihiro Nakamura could be added to the active roster in time for the Rakuten Eagles 2-game series that begins on the 8th (at Kleenex Stadium).  That would allow the Bay Stars to use Nakamura as a DH.
