Streak: Won 1 Last 5: LWDLW
Trivia question: When was the last time that Tokyo had to cancel consecutive home games because of weather?
That’s right, this afternoon’s game got nixed as well. Narveson was slated to start the game for your birds, but now everyone gets an extra day off.
For the record, the Tokyo Swallows are still in fifth place with a 23-30-2 record. They sit one game clear of Yokohama and the bottom of the CL cellar. Frustratingly, the Swallows currently sport the best run differential in the CL at +7. League-leading Hiroshima are at +6, and then that’s it for teams in positive territory. That said, Tokyo has the worst team ERA with 4.86, so it’s not really all that mystifying that they’re in fifth.
If the weather clears up, Tokyo will host Saitama on Sunday (2 PM) and Monday (6 PM).
