- It’s “starting pitchers return from injury” week for the Swallows as Tateyama makes his return to the mound tomorrow against somebody named Sunada for Yokohama.
- With the loss, the Swallows are two games behind the second place Yokohamas.
- Ohbiki sat out this game with a hip issue. He is still day to day.
