INTERLEAGUE JOY POINTS

  • The Hawks runs all came via Yanagita long balls: a 3R jobbie off Ishikawa in the 3rd, and a solo shot off Naruse in the 8th.
  • Tokyo’s lone run came from Fujii’s first career home run in the 5th, with the bats managing just two other hits off Hawks pitching all evening.
  • Yes there’s still a week and a half of this dumpster fire left.
  • Hey, at least the Orange Fuck-Trumpets lost again eh? (W0-L8, 12 Ls on the bounce, setting a glorious new club record).
  • The Swallows will send 2016 4th round draft pick – 22 year old lefty Hikaru Nakao – to the wolves tomorrow, as he makes his first career start in the final game of the series in Fukuoka.
