Right. Back to Normal.

We were never going to win that game anyway with Tateyama (0-2, 4.15 era) on the mound. In the third and final inning of Tateyama's afternoon he gave up five runs on five hits and three walks (the last of which forced in a run).

And it definitely didn't help that we were facing Hiroshima's ace, Kuroda (4-2, 2.72).

Kuroda got through nine innings on only 89 pitches this afternoon (7 hits, 5 strikeouts, and 1 walk). Both of Tokyo's runs were brought around by Guiel's bat (7th inning solo dinger and 9th inning rbi single to center)

Final score:

Hiroshima 5
Tokyo 2

Silver Lining:

Ishikawa (0-3, 7.08), one of Tokyo's many starters who forgot how to pitch during the off-season, made a two-inning middle relief appearance. He retired all six batters he faced and had two strikeouts.
