Tonight for Triple-A Buffalo, Ryota Igarashi replaced Pat Misch in the eighth inning of their game against the Charlotte Knights, and he allowed just a double to Brent Lillibridge, throwing 19 pitches, 13 of which were strikes.

Igarashi told Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News he feels he’s “ready to go” for tomorrow.
