Jul 14th 2014, @ Yomiuri

'Nori allowed only one run over eight very solid innings.

July 14th, 2014 Tokyo Swallows 12 Yomiuri Giants 1 Streak: Won 1    Last 5: LLLLW (Tokyo Dome) After getting swept by the BayStars at home for the first time in 14 years, your birds were clearly a little upset. And they decided to take their frustrations out on local bully, Yomiuri. Funnily enough, the […]

Jul 13th 2014, vs Yokohama

Yokohama_BayStars

July 13th, 2014 Yokohama BayStars 8 Tokyo Swallows 4 Streak: Lost 5 Last 5: LLLLL (Meiji Jingu Stadium) For a while there, it looked like the birds would get held to one run again, but the final scoreline was a bit closer than the two previous evenings. But, alas, the result was still the same. […]

Jul 12th 2014, vs Yokohama

It's not Ogawa's fault. It's those silly green uniforms that fouled things up.

July 12th, 2014 Yokohama BayStars 7 Tokyo Swallows 1 Streak: Lost 4 Last 5: WLLLL (Meiji Jingu Stadium) Yokohama has outscored Tokyo 17-2 over the past two games. Bury your heads in the sand, Swallowers. And even with it’s ace back on the mound after an extended spell on the DL, the team wasn’t able to […]

Jul 6th 2014, @ Hiroshima [Game Called]

July 6th, 2014 Tokyo Swallows 2 Hiroshima Carp 2  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 […]

Jul 5th 2014, @ Hiroshima

July 5th, 2014 Tokyo Swallows 4 Hiroshima Carp 3  Streak: Won 1    Last 5: LLLLW (Mazda Zooooom Zoooooom Stadium) Your birds put an end to a four game slide after enduring a Kenta Maeda-led whooping the night before. Aside from pulling out the win in the ninth innings, Iwahashi got his first career win […]

Jun 29th 2014, vs Yomiuri (Akita) [Game Cancelled]

June 29th, 2013 Yomiuri Giants  Tokyo Swallows  Streak: Lost 1  Last 5: WWLWL (Akita) [Game Cancelled] Tokyo did not have a chance to avenge yesterday’s drubbing due to a downpour. On Tuesday your birds will play Hanshin in Kurashiki before returning to Koshien for games on Wednesday and Thursday. Then they’re off to Hiroshima for a […]

Jun 28th 2014, vs Yomiuri (Akita)

June 28th, 2013 Yomiuri Giants 9 Tokyo Swallows 0 Streak: Lost 1  Last 5: WWLWL (Akita) A very unappetizing, unsavory, and unsexy game was played in Akita Prefecture today. Narveson allowed nine runs (six earned) during his three and one-third innings on the mound. Narveson recorded outs against the first two batters he faced today, but […]

May 17th 2014, @ Chunichi

Yagi kept Chunichi off the board for the first six innings.

May 17th, 2014  Tokyo Swallows 4 Chunichi Dragons 1 Streak: Won 5  Last 5: WWWWW (Nagoya Dome) Your birds are making it look easy. For whatever reason, Tokyo wasn’t able to snag a single win in Yokohama last weekend, but they’ve rebounded by winning consecutive series versus Yomiuri and Chunichi. I would’ve been happy with taking two […]

May 16th 2014, @ Chunichi

Home run number six.

May 16th, 2014  Tokyo Swallows 7 Chunichi Dragons 4 Streak: Won 4  Last 5: LWWWW (Nagoya Dome) The fourth change of venue in four days, and your Tokyo Swallows put together yet another convincing win. And Narveson got his long-overdue first W in Japan. This game was pretty quiet through three, but then Kawabata reached base […]

May 11th 2014, @ Yokohama

Boom. Number 13.

May 11th, 2014 Tokyo Swallows 2 Yokohama BayStars 3 Streak: Lost 4 Last 5: WLLLL (Yokohama Stadium) Happy Mother’s Day! The Swallows gave you a present, Mom! More stranded base runners and a series sweep at the hands of the BayStars. Yagi started for the Swallows, and he pitched well. But it wasn’t enough. It […]
