Hoshi started for the Swallows, Utsumi for the hated ones.

The Swallows jumped out to an early lead in the second inning after a three run homer in by Araki, his fifth of the season. This was followed up by another pair of hits, the latter an RBI hit by Yamasaki. 4-0 Swallows

The Gomiuris quickly responded in the next inning as McGhee added a run scoring flyball and Murata singled to left with the bases loaded. 4-3 Swallows

That was the scoring for this entire game as neither team mounted much of a threat for the final six innings. (aka it was boring but a rare win is a win these days…)

Josh Lueke came on in the ninth inning for an easy save. 4-3 Final
