Munenori Kawasaki got the start a short and batted lead-off during a Ni-gun game against the Orix Buffaloes today. He helped turn a double play in the first inning. He went 1-for-2 at the plate: single to right in the first inning; reached on a ground out to second with a runner on first and one out in the third inning, caught trying to steal second. He was replaced on defense in the fourth inning.
Kawasaki is scheduled to play in tomorrow’s Ni-gun Orix game as well.
