FYI: if you emphasize consecutive games without a loss, it is 13-0-3.

Yakult Swallows

Lastings Milledge was tossed from the game after he struck out and complained about balls and strikes (he was not happy with the second called strike) in the 3rd inning.  It was Milledge's second ejection of the season. Source: Sports Hochi 7/7/2012, Sponichi 7/7/2012

Hanshin Tigers

Tomoaki Kanemoto was held out of the starting line-up tonight with tightness in his lower back.  Kanemoto did arrive at the stadium with the other players.  He also took part in warm-ups, but later shifted to do his own thing.  He did not take pre-game batting practice.  Source: Daily Sports 7/7/2012
