Tokyo Swallows 0

Yomiuri Giants 2

(Tokyo Stain Dome)

Streak: Lost 2 Last 5: LLTLL

The Swallows once again failed to get their first win of July. The Giants scored on a no out bases loaded sac fly and a Sakamoto solo shot. Hoshi pitched seven innings of strong baseball but got no help from the offense as they struck out a total of 13 times Sugano and the Giants relievers.
