8/27/11 Hanshin (Away) [Game Cancelled]

August 27th, 2011

Tokyo Swallows

Hanshin Tigers

Streak: Lost 2    Last 5: WWDLL


Heavy rains at Koshien led to the cancellation of the game tonight. The game was initially announced as being delayed, and the starters were announced. The pitching matchup would have been Messenger against Yoshinori. Keizo would have led off and started at shortstop. Aikawa would have been given the night off and Kawamoto would have started. No idea whether this lineup will be used tomorrow, when weather permitting, the two teams will play.

    Interestingly enough Masubuchi and Yuhei Nakamura both tweeted about the cancellation a good 5-10 minutes before the official announcement.
