Atsushi Nomi recorded his first complete game loss yesterday in his 136th start of his career.

Yomiuri Giants

Taishi Ota will be demoted to Ni-gun due to his continued struggles at the plate: he has a slash line of .160/.154/.200 in 27 PA and also doesn't have a hit in his last 16 trips to the plate.
