April 22nd, 2016 Tokyo Swallows 6 Chunichi Dragons 11 Streak: Lost 1  Last 5: WWLWL (Nagoya Dome) The Swallows took their first trip of 2016 to the bland confines of the Nagoya Dome. A bit of Tokyo pride rested on this match-up. (How on Earth are the Dragons in second? What happened to the nascent […]

September 19th, 2014 Tokyo Swallows 3 Yomiuri Giants 6 Streak: Lost 2  Last 5: DLWLL (Tokyo Dome) A pair of two-run innings midway through the game for the Giants put this one out of reach. Utsumi got his sixth win of the year in the process. Ishikawa only ended up pitching five innings which gives you […]

April 12th, 2014 Tokyo Swallows 4 Yokohama BayStars 5 Streak: Lost 1 Last 5: LLLWL (Yokohama Stadium) Your Swallows looked to string together a pair of wins for only the second time so far this season, but a complete-game effort from Yokohama starter, Ino, was enough to overcome a ninth-inning Tokyo rally. For his part, […]

July 25th, 2013 Hanshin Tigers  1 Tokyo Swallows 11 Streak: Won 1   Last 5: LLLLW (Jingu Stadium) Winning feels good. I highly recommend it.
