Streak: Won 1 Last 5: LLLLW
[Game called due to rain in the fourth]
(Mazda Zooooom Zoooooom Stadium)
This game was halted in the fourth with the score tied at two. That means that solo home runs by Kawabata, Maru, and Eldred in the third inning will be stricken from the record.
Hiroshima’s Nomura ended up pitching four full innings (64 pitches) before the rain caused a delay during the changeover. Everyone was sent packing after 26 minutes of continuous downpour.
Your Tokyo Swallows return to Jingu Stadium for a three-game set against Chunichi.
