Streak: Lost 1 Last 5: WLWWL
(Meiji Jingu Stadium)
As if waiting until today following Tuesday’s deflating defeat to Hiroshima didn’t stir the nerves of Swallows fans enough already, the weather conspired to delay things further as tonight’s game was postponed due to an excess of rain and wind over Tokyo.
So the M1 Swallows must wait another 24 hours for their shot at making history, with the make-up game slotting into this Friday evening.
The starters for the game remain the same: Ogawa vs Iwata, while Hiroyasu Tanaka was called back up to the top team today in preparation for his pennant-clinching 12th inning pinch-hit sayonara single.
