6TH PLACE BASEBALL

The Swallows drew seven walks but only added three singles tonight. They loaded the bases twice, mostly by way of crappy opposing pitching, but they only scored a run when a fielding error in right was involved (6th inning).

Otherwise, count yourself as extremely lucky that you weren’t at this game.

If you were there, then I assume that you drank heavily enough to forget the whole thing.

About Christopher Pellegrini

Christopher is a budding sabermetrician and long-time supporter of Tokyo's more lovable team, the Swallows. He has publicly volunteered, several times, that he plans to buy the team at some point in the future. When he finally runs the joint, it is likely that he will fine any player who swings at the first pitch or sac bunts (unless it's a pitcher, of course). Follow him on Twitter: @chrispellegrini
