(Kurashiki Muscat Stadium)

 The rubber match of the Swallows-Tigers series was called due to rain two hours before the scheduled first pitch. The team’s mini-trip into Okayama will be for naught as the game will be made up at Koshien later in the season. The Swallows will head to Nagoya to face the Dragons in the dull-but-weatherproof Nagoya Dome for a three game series starting tomorrow. No word yet on how the cancellation will affect the rotation.

UPDATED: Ishikawa will start tomorrow’s game as scheduled, and Ogawa will likely start Saturday’s game.

Keiji Ohbiki was recalled to the active roster earlier today and Ryosuke Morioka was removed from the active roster to make room.
