Kazuhito Futagami started a Ni-gun game against Orix today and gave up 5 runs on 7 hits over 4 innings of work.
Yokohama Bay Stars
Terrmel Sledge was held out of the starting line-up today with pink eye. Sledge started complaining of eye pain after yesterday's game and was excused from practice today in order to get his eyes checked out. While it usually takes 1-2 weeks for a full recovery, the Bay Stars are hopeful Sledge will be able to play on the 28th (vs Chunichi) since he's medication to help relieve some of the symptoms.
