Wladimir Balentien got the start in left and batted fourth against Chunichi at Nagoya Dome today. He tweaked his left leg (adductor muscle) while chasing down a fly ball hit by¬†Yohei¬†Oshima in the bottom of the first inning. He was taken out of the game as a precaution. He later told reporters he did not think it was a strain and that he should be okay for Tuesday’s game.
