[8/9/2016] Yuki Nishi limited to five innings because of back pain

Yuki Nishi¬†left tonight’s (August 9) game against the Softbank Hawks at Kyocera Dome after five shutout innings because of fairly strong tightness in his left waist (he first started feeling it in the morning). He later told reporters that he thought¬†things could get worse if he continued to pitch and that he would not know the full extent of his condition until tomorrow.
