Wins continue to elude Ishikawa as he got a bit unlucky with some bad defense and the Swallows bats were completely ineffective.

The Tigers capitalized on an lead off error by Fujii in the second to the tune of two runs with a single and triple to open the scoring. 2-0 Tigers

The Tigers got their insurance run in the fifth after Coco misplayed a fly to left and the Tigers got a few singles. 3-0 Tigers

Ishikawa actually pitched a quality start (7.0 IP / 6 H / 0 BB / 4 K / 3 R / 1 ER) but the Swallows only got two Rivero singles as offense letting the Tigers cruise to a victory. 3-0 Tigers FINAL
