Due to heavy rain over the Osaka area (and indeed most of western Japan) overnight and during the morning/early afternoon, the game was called-off at 13:20. Since then it hasn’t rained for most of the afternoon, but oh well, I guess they had their reasons.

The two teams will try again tomorrow evening for their final game before the all-star break.

About David Watkins

David is a baseball bothering Brummie who spends a fair portion of his life fretting over the Tokyo Swallows and the WORLD'S GREATEST FOOTBALL TEAM, Aston Villa. He completes the quartet of abusive sporting relationships by being a die hard New York Knicks and Mets fan. You can find him on twitter: @yakulto

  • After booking a (much cheaper) hotel for another night, re-arranging shinkansen tickets and buying a ticket for Wednesday’s game, I shall be there too with another third of Tsubamegun, Garrett.

    Bloody weather.
