[5/13/2016] Kenta Kurihara plays in first game in about two months

Kenta Kurihara suffered a strain in his right calf before opening day. He played in his first game in about two months on May 12.

Kurihara was the starting designated hitter and batted fifth against Ni-gun Yokohama. In two trips to the plate, he flied out to short and lined out to short. He told reporters he was able to put a good swing on the ball when he lined out to short in his second at bat and that he was able to make adjustments during the at bat that helped him regain his timing (he was late on the first two pitches).
