May 28th 2016, @ Chunichi

May 28th, 2016 Tokyo Swallows 9 Chunichi Dragons 6 Streak: Won 1   Last 5: LWWLW (Nagoya Dome) The good guys prevailed after a long-winded seesaw battle down in Nagoya. Every Swallows starter not named Balentien or Yamanaka reached base safely at least once in this afternoon’s contest. Everything clicked by pretty smoothly during the first five […]

May 7th, 2016 Tokyo Swallows 10 Hanshin Tigers 6 Streak: Won 1  Last 5: WLLLW (Koshien Stadium) Today marked Perez’s first day in the rotation.

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 […]
