Nippon Ham Fighters
Frustration and stress levels may be running a little high in the Fighters' clubhouse. Atsushi Ugumori got into an argument with Sho Nakata yesterday and staff had to step in to cool tempers. Ugumori later told reporters it was nothing and apologized. Sports Hochi notes that Nakata left without saying a word to reports.
Yuki Saito threw 35 pitches in the bullpen yesterday.
Yodai Enoshita was added to the active roster on Friday and will be used primarily out of the bullpen.
The Eagles set a new franchise record by holding opponents to 2 runs or less in 6 straight games. The previous high of 5 games was set in April 2008 and May/June 2011.
The Eagles will be selling same-day tickets for Saturday's game.
