Takashi Toritani extended his hitting streak to 6 games yesterday (8-for-22), as did Matt Murton (16-for-27).
Before yesterday's game, Daiki Enokida had given up just 2 earned runs over 24.1 innings of work. But Enokida struggled with his control during his 1-inning stint in relief yesterday and gave up 4 runs (3 earned) on 1 hit, 2 walks, and an HBP.
The Tigers will likely take Yuya Ando off the active roster today after he had a rough first start of the season (1.2 IP, 5 H, 1 SO, 2 BB, 3 R, 3 ER).
Yasutomo Kubo started running outdoors yesterday. Assuming no setbacks, Kubo could start throwing into a net next week.
Alex Ramirez hit his 10th homer of the season last night and has now collected double-digit homers in 11 consecutive seasons. That ties the NPB foreign player record set by Bobby Marcano (Hakyu and Yakult) between 1975 - 1985.
Shohei Tateyama was tossed from last night's game after he accidentally hit Nobuhiro Matsuda in the head in the 4th inning. It was Tateyama's first ejection of his career.
