(Mazda Zooooom Zoooooom Stadium)

The Swallows and Carp attempted to start a game in the rain but the game was stopped with no outs and a man on first in the top of the second. After over an hour and a half delay the game was called. Nothing particularly exciting happened and no important records will be wiped from the record. Yamada got the Swallows’ lone hit to start the game. The starters and the unofficial boxscore are preserved below.

The Swallows will travel to Nagoya to face the Dragons starting tomorrow. Ishikawa is scheduled to make the start tomorrow.

Called Game. Stats are all unofficial.
