Holy Crap! Tokyo Won a Game!

After seven straight losses, the Swallows got a win! Greisinger pitched six solid innings while giving up two runs on five hits.

Tokyo blew the game wide open in the third when the first five batters had base hits. That six hit inning translated into five runs.

In an interesting development, Guiel and Ramirez have been switched in the batting order. I would imagine that Furuta is trying to figure out where Guiel feels the most comfortable, and Ramirez is probably more than happy to give up the cleanup slot if it means that the team will knock in extra runs and win more ballgames. He's easy like that.

For those who are keeping track, Ramirez went 2 for 5, and Guiel was 2 for 4.

Final score:
Hiroshima 2
Tokyo 6

Update: This win enabled Tokyo to escape their first 8-game losing streak in 15 years.
