[9/4/2016] Hiroki Uemoto leaves game on stretcher

Hiroki Uemoto hurt his right leg during Sunday’s game against the Yokohama Bay Stars at Koshien Stadium.

The incident took place in the eighth inning. Uemoto had a lead off second base and slid back into the bag on a pick-off attempt. He was safe, but tweaked something in his right leg on the slide. He appeared to be in a fair amount of pain and had to be taken off the field on a stretcher.

Tomoaki Kanemoto was asked about Uemoto during a post-game interview. He said it was a cramp and most likely not serious.
