Norichika Aoki MIL MIL 6 @ CIN 0 RF 4 0 1 0 0 0 1 .301 Batted lead-off. G5, G1 (DP), 2B9, G1. ... Has apparently made some headlines for giving a fan an "imaginary" baseball after catching a ball near the wall on Friday.  According to Sponichi, Aoki felt he could not give the ball to the fan because it was not the end of the inning and instead sort of shook his hand (low five).  [Sponichi 6/16/2013]
