Tigers succumbed to a 10-2 loss to the Giants yesterday. I wasn’t too surprised- indeed I was expecting it, but the manner of the defeat was upsetting. Looks like Fossum has pitched his last game for a while – he’s been sent down to ni-gun
Matt Murton finally ended his hitting streak with a hitless 5 at-plate appearances yesterday. In better news, Murton has been chosen as a “coach’s recommendation” for the All-Star games at the end of the month- brilliant news! Other Tigers in the squad include Kyuji Fujikawa, Kubo, Johjima (fan’s choice) and Hirano.
Finally, it looks like tomorrow’s starter against the Swallows at Koshien is Jason Standridge. No word on Nohmi’s recovery time recently, but one hopes he’s getting close to full fitness
