Four in a Row

Tokyo somehow managed to sweep Yokohama this past weekend. That brings their streak to four straight wins.

After the extra-innings win on Friday, they followed it up with another walk-off outing on Saturday.

Tokyo 4 -- 3 Yokohama
W: Hanada (2 wins, 1 loss, 2 saves)
L: Kusano (4 wins, 5 losses, 1 save)

The game on Sunday wasn't nearly as close as the other two.

Tokyo 6 -- 2 Yokohama
W: Kawashima (3 wins, 0 losses)
L: Doi (7 wins, 8 losses)

A spot in the playoffs is still a bit of a long shot, but it's not impossible. If we can get a couple more guys to start pitching like they mean it, then there's definitely a chance that we could be playing some extra baseball in October.

Through games on the 26th of August, Tokyo is 11 games behind Hanshin and 3rd place in the Central League.
