Chiba Lotte Marines

  • Hideaki Wakui will be sent down to Ni-gun to work through some issues for an indefinite amount of time.  Wakui started a game against Rakuten on Sunday and gave up six runs (five earned) on seven hits and two walks over four innings of work.  "It's difficult to lose with a pitcher we hope will win.  Every time we get our hopes up thinking today will be the day.  Not anymore," said Tsutomu Ito.  He continued, "Trying someone new isn't an option because there is no one else at the point. We'll just have to mix things up with the people we have.  We can only wait until [Wakui] figures out what's wrong." Source: Sponichi 7/13/2014, Nikkan Sports 7/13/2014
