The Swallows’ glorious brand of 6TH PLACE BASEBALL™ was on full display as they dropped their second straight game in Nagoya. Another decent shift from Hoshi was wasted as the bats couldn’t get to Chunichi starter Jordan, despite his penchant for putting men on base.

[LOOK AT THE BOX SCORE AND PITCHING LINES ABOVE, AND USE YOUR IMAGINATION IN PLACE OF UNNECESSARY TEXT HERE. WHATEVER YOU IMAGINE, IT WILL LIKELY BE BETTER THAN WHAT OCCURRED DURING THE TWO AND THREE QUARTER HOURS OF THIS “GAME”. IF YOU CAN INCORPORATE GORILLAS AND COCAINE INTO YOUR IMAGINED GAME I THINK YOU MAY WELL COME OUT ON TOP]

Tomorrow will see David Buchanan take the mound against Raul Valdez, as Tokyo try to leave Nagoya with more than a big overflowing bucket of broken dreams.
