Hanshin Tigers

Tsuyoshi Nishioka did not play in his second straight game because he is nursing a cut on his left hand.  He took batting practice and fielding practice at third base during pre-game practices today.  He did not play in tonight's game against the Yokohama Bay Stars because the team did not want to risk the cut reopening.
