Today's intra-squad game:

The whites beat the reds, 5-1 (9 innings).

Yoshihisa Naruse started the game for the whites and did not allow a run over 2 innings of work.  Naruse faced a total 7 batters and gave up 1 hit.

Shunsuke Watanabe entered the game in the 3rd for the whites and gave up 1 run on 1 hit over 2 innings of work.  The lone run Watanabe allowed came on a solo homer by Ryusuke Minami.

Takashi Ogino started at short and batted second for the reds.  Ogino managed to steal his first base in about 9 months and also collected a hit in his third at bat.

Yesterday's intra-squad game:

The reds beat the whites, 17-9 (8 innings).

Combined, the two team scored 26 runs, banged out 35 hits, and walked 12 times.

Yasutaka Hattori was the 5th pitcher used by the white team and allowed 5 runs on 6 hits over an inning of work (he faced a total 10 batters).

Saburo was the starting DH and batted 3rd for the reds.  He went 3-for-5 (including a grand slam) with 5 RBI.

Atsushi Kobayashi (3rd round) threw 112 pitches in the bullpen today.  This coming on the heels of allowing 8 runs over 2 innings of work during yesterday's intra-squad game.

Yasutaka Hattori complained of pain in his left flank during yesterday's intra-squad game and was later taken to the hospital and diagnosed with bruising of the intercostal muscle (左肋間筋挫傷).  Hattori was sent back to Tokyo Today for further examination.

===== 2/7 @ 11:28pm

Yoshihisa Naruse not only threw 108 pitches during BP today, but also tossed another 126 in the bullpen (for total 234).

===

Bob McCrory made an appearance during BP today and faced Shota Ishimine (1st round) and Shota Koike (4th round).

Ishimine had a hard time adjusting to McCrory's two-seamer.

===

Despite spending about 20 minutes tossing BP today, Atsuhiro Mitsuhara threw an additional 31 pitches in the bullpen.

===== 2/7 @ 5:06pm

Takeshi Aono was promoted to Ichi-gun spring camp today.

===

The media learned yesterday that there was a chance the Marines might give Atsushi Kobayashi (3rd round) a start in an exhibition game against the Nippon Ham Fighters on the 26th.  Seems Norifumi Nishimura was fairly impressed with Kobayashi's BP outing yesterday: 74 pitches; faced Ikuhiro Kiyota, Naotaka Takehara, Hisao Heiuchi, and Shoitsu Omatsu; gave up 11 could-be hits (including 2 homers to Omatsu); he also broke Takehara's bat with an fastball on the inside portion of the plate.

===

Yuki Karakawa faced four batters, including Tomoya Satozaki and Kazuya Fukuura, during his BP outing yesterday.  He also only threw fastballs.
