Swallows Claim Sole Possession of 2nd Place!

The game scheduled for tonight has been called off due to that typhoon-thingy that's slowly tumbling north. However, the previous two games, on Friday and Saturday, resulted in wins for the home club!

The Swallows beat the Giants 6-3 last night, and 6-4 the evening before. Ramirez has picked up the pace over the past 10 days or so, and he hit a long-ball during both of the wins this weekend. Dobashi is another highlight this month. He's now hitting around .330, and he's taking care of business at second base.

Ishii and Miyamoto are now back in town after their little swing through Athens (no comment), and that should help shore up our relief pitching and fielding, respectively. Now if we could only get Suzuki to stop being so lazy while playing first base...

The Yakult Swallows have won 14 of their last 19 games! There's still a lot of baseball yet to be played, and there are a good number of us from Section D who think that we've got as good a shot as anyone this season.
