9/8/10 — Hiroshima (Home) [Game Cancelled]

September 8th, 2010

Hiroshima Toyo Carp

Tokyo Yakult Swallows

Streak: Won 1 Last 5: DWLDW

(Meiji Jingu Stadium)

The game was cancelled at a little after 3:00 PM due to the imminent downpours promised by the typhoon.

Look for this game to be rescheduled during the first week or so in October.

At any rate, the final game of this series is scheduled for 6 PM tomorrow evening.

About Christopher Pellegrini

Christopher is a budding sabermetrician and long-time supporter of Tokyo’s more lovable team, the Swallows. He has publicly volunteered, several times, that he plans to buy the team at some point in the future. When he finally runs the joint, it is likely that he will fine any player who swings at the first pitch or sac bunts (unless it’s a pitcher, of course). Follow him on Twitter: @chrispellegrini

  • Yomiuri’s game in Yokohama was also cancelled. The Hanshin vs Chunichi matchup should go on as scheduled though because it’s being played indoors at Skymark.

    Hopefully Hanshin can beat them again to help keep second place within the realm of a pipe dream for Tokyo fans.
