A bad day for Yoshinori on the mound in Nagoya.

The game started on a high note, as the Swallows managed to grab a run in the top of the first thanks to a Yamada RBI. The Dragons quickly tied the game with a run of their own, however. 1-1.

Yoshinori managed to get out of the second unscathed, but the third was a different story. With men on second and third, Guerrero hit one into the stands to score three. 4-1.

The Swallows managed to put one more run on the board in the fourth thanks to a Yamada double followed by an RBI from Rivero. It would be the team’s last run of the game, unfortunately. 4-2.

Meanwhile, the Dragons added some insurance runs in the sixth with Kondo giving up a hit, HBP and home run combo, leading to the game’s final score of 7-2 Dragons.

Yoshinori encapsulates the entire 2017 season in a single pose.

Game notes:

  • Yoshinori threw just 75 pitches over 4 innings—his shortest outing of the season.
  • Three of the good guys had multi-hit games: Sakaguchi and Rivero with two and Yamada with three. Tetsuto’s RBI for the month of August is .444.
  • August 15 sees the Gomi from down the street come infest Jingu for a three-game series (but man, at least you can get a darn ticket, unlike Hiroshima games).
