Yoshio Itoi hurt his right side during an at bat in the fifth inning of tonight’s game against the Hiroshima Carp at Koshien Stadium. Itoi swung and missed at a 2-1 pitch and grabbed his right side. A Hanshin trainer popped out of the dugout to check on the veteran. Itoi left the field for treatment but did not return. He was replaced by Shun Takayama.
