Yomiuri Giants 7
Streak: Lost 4. Last 5: WLLLL
Tokyo starter, Ryo Kawashima (5-4, 4.19), gave up five earned runs in six innings of work, and the offense only chipped in with six hits as the Swallows dropped their fourth straight game.
Kisanuki (6-3, 3.46) got the win for Yomiuri, and combined with three relievers to keep Tokyo from scoring.
All of the Yomiuri starters, save Kisanuki, got on base at least once during the game while completing the three game sweep of their cross-town rivals.
Tokyo returns to Jingu tomorrow night for the first game of a two game series versus the first-place Hanshin Tigers. The game will start at 6pm.
