Yuki Saito started a Ni-gun game against Yokohama on July 5. He gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits, including two solo home runs, over five innings of work. He face twenty-one hitters, threw seventy-two pitches, walked one, and struck out three. He also took a batted ball off his right thigh while pitching the fifth inning. Assuming he is okay, he could get another Ichi-gun start on July 11 against Orix at Kyocera Dome.
