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  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 […]

Fludge's second homer of the season put the birds ahead 6-0.

April 26th, 2014 Chunichi Dragons 4 Tokyo Swallows 8 Streak: Won 1  Last 5: LLLLW (Meiji Jingu Stadium) The Swallows finally pulled out a win, mercifully ending a nine-game losing skid.

We need more of this...

April 10th, 2014  Tokyo Swallows 6 Chunichi Dragons 8 Streak: Lost 4  Last 5: WLLLL (Nagoya Dome) The Swallows came into tonight’s game still looking for their first road win of the season.
