[4/5/2016] Manaka not planning to change one through four in batting order

Mitsuru Manaka does not think he has to tinker with the top four spots in the batting order (Tomotaka Sakaguchi, Shingo Kawabata, Tetsuto Yamada, and Kazuhiro Hatakeyama). Wladimir Balentien returned to the line-up on April 3 and batted sixth. Yuhei and Balentien will flip-flop in the five and six slots depending on match-ups and performances.
