Thursday game.  Orix Buffaloes vs Chiba Lotte Marines at QVC Marine.

No one on, bottom of the 7th.

Josh Whitesell up to bat for Lotte.  Ming-Chieh Hsu on the mound for Orix.

Ito was taken off the field on a stretcher and taken to a hospital in Chiba where he was diagnosed with a contusion on the right side of his head.

For those living outside of Japan, you might not be able to see the video because it is a PacificLeagueMovie upload.

UPDATE @ 11:55am - This one should work outside of Japan and includes highlights from the entire game.
