Source: Nikkan Sports 8/13/2014 ... Messenger set a new franchise record for foreign pitchers by extending his winning streak against the Yomiuri Giants this season to four.  Bacque (1964) and Matt Keough (1988, 1990) were the previous record-holders.  The last Japanese pitcher to go on a four-game winning streak against the Giants from the start of the season was Tsuyoshi Shimoyanagi in 2005.  Including his last win against the Giants in 2012, Messenger is in the middle of a five-game winning streak against Yomiuri.  The franchise record of eight is currently held by three pitchers: Tadayoshi Kajioka (1947-1948), Shigeru Kobayashi (1979), and Atsushi Nomi (2009-2011).  Messenger drove in two RBI on Tuesday and became the first pitcher in franchise history to record seven RBIs in one season since Toshiro Yufune in 1992.

Yokohama Bay Stars

Yoshitomo Tsutsugo collided into Takayuki Kajitani on a fly ball to right-center in the 1st inning of Wednesday's game against the Chunichi Dragons at Nagoya Dome.  Tsutsugo got tangled up with Kajitani and tumbled to the ground.  He struck the back of his head hard on the ground and was not conscious.  He was immobilized before being placed on a stretcher and loaded onto an ambulance.  Play was stopped for about eighteen minutes.

Tsutsugo was taken to a hospital in Naogya for tests.  He was diagnosed with a concussion and a cervical concussion.  He did regain consciousness and had movement in his hands and legs.  He will be given additional tests on Thursday.

You can view the replay at Youtube (not my upload).  Not sure how long it will stay up.
