    Former Mets/Dodgers starter Kazuhisa Ishii pitched well in an exhibition win against Orix yesterday. Yakult beat the Buffaloes 8-0 and Ishii pitched five innings giving up only 2 hits and no runs. Player/Manager Furtuta will be thrilled that Ishii looked sharp as a great deal of speculation surrounded the once deadly pitcher after four fairly average years in the majors.
