Apr 13th 2014, @ Yokohama

Don't get your hopes up just yet; he didn't face a particularly dangerous lineup. But two runs over seven innings? Thank you very, very much, Mr. Kiya.

April 13th, 2014 Tokyo Swallows 4 Yokohama BayStars 2 Streak: Won 1 Last 5: LLWLW (Yokohama Stadium) Two relative unknowns started the game today. Yokohama’s Moscoso looked to build on his solid first performance as a BayStar, and Kiya took the mound for the first time in 2014 on Tokyo’s behalf. Balentien again found himself […]

Apr 6th 2014, vs Hanshin

Just like the good old days.

April 6th, 2014 Hanshin Tigers 15 Tokyo Swallows 8 Streak: Lost 1  Last 5: LLWWL (Meiji Jingu Stadium) Tokyo sent Nakazawa to the mound for his first start of the season, and the Swallows bats hoped to pile more misery on Hanshin’s Enokida who entered the game with a 12.50 ERA. But alas, it was […]

Apr 5th 2014, vs Hanshin

Morioka came through when it counted once again.

April 5th, 2014 Hanshin Tigers 11 Tokyo Swallows 12 Streak: Won 2  Last 5: LLLWW (Meiji Jingu Stadium) And your Tokyo Swallows are back at .500 after a back-and-forth game at Jingu. Matt Murton must be pissed. The reason why he must be upset is he racked up seven RBI, but his teammates couldn’t help […]

Aikawa ties the game in the bottom of the sixth.

March 29th, 2014 Yokohama BayStars 5 Tokyo Swallows 4 Streak: Lost 1       Last 5: WL (Meiji Jingu Stadium) Yokohama brought both teams winning percentage to .500 with the BayStars first win of the 2014 season. Despite the loss, there were several positives to take away from this game from the home team’s […]

Sep 22nd 2013, @ Hanshin

Iihara's bat was responsible for Tokyo's first three runs.

September 22nd, 2013 Hanshin Tigers 6 Tokyo Swallows 7 Streak: Won 1 Last 5: WWLTW (Koshien Stadium) For a while there this felt very much like yesterday afternoon’s game. But fortunately for Tokyo fans, time ran out on the Hanshin comeback. Your Swallows never trailed in this one, but the Tigers kept it close throughout. […]

Aug 23rd 2013, @ Hiroshima

Never a good sign to see this early in a game.

August 23, 2013 at Hiroshima   Tokyo Swallows 2  Hiroshima Carp 6  Streak: Lost 1    Last 5: LLWWL (Mazda Zooooom Zoooooom Stadium Hiroshima)   It was 80’s night at Zoom Zoom stadium as the Carp uniforms went “back in time” to the McFly era. The Birds were coming off a great series win over […]

Hanshin Tigers Junk

August 18th, 2013 Tokyo Swallows 2 Hanshin Tigers 6 Streak: Lost 4 Last 5: WLLLL (Kyocera Dome) Attempting to avoid the sweep, your birds sent Nakazawa to the mound. It was just his third appearance of the 2013 campaign, and over his eight innings of work he’d posted a 7.88 ERA with a record of […]

Aug 17th 2013, @ Hanshin

Ogawa even helped his own cause with a double in the third, but the rest of his teammates weren't doing much to back him up today.

August 17th, 2013 Tokyo Swallows 0 Hanshin Tigers 1 Streak: Lost 3 Last 5: WWLLL (Kyocera Dome) This game was boring. Of course, it goes without saying that my subjective analysis of this game is based purely on the fact that we lost. Hanshin scored the only run of the game in the bottom of […]

Aug 16th 2013, @ Hanshin

1-0 Tokyo!!

August 16th, 2013 Tokyo Swallows 1 Hanshin Tigers 2 Streak: Lost 2 Last 5: LWWLL (Kyocera Dome) Tonight was a low scoring affair with both starting pitchers going at least 7 innings but neither factored into the final decision. The Birds battled hard throughout but were eventually undone by a late error. Tonight was all […]

Hiroshima Carp logo clean

August 2nd, 2013 Hiroshima Carp 13 Tokyo Swallows 5 Streak: LOSING!!!!    Last 5: LLLLL (Meiji Jingu Stadium) The Carp DROPPED 13 RUNS on the Birds for the second time in a little more than 2 weeks. As ugly as this ended, the Birds actually had the lead early. Unlike the expression “As easy as shooting fish […]
