Hiroyuki Kobayashi was excused from tonight's game because of a fever and diarrhea.

Akira Iwamoto started a Ni-gun game against Hiroshima today and tossed 3 shutout innings while allowing just 1 hit (an infield hit in the 1st inning).

Yakult Swallows

Wladimir Balentien continues to struggle at the plate: hitless in his last 35 trips to the plate.  He has seen his batting average go from .331 to .286 during that span.  He also committed a costly error in the 7th that likely cost the team a victory.

The Swallows may decide to take Balentien out of the line-up to give him some rest.
