Short Series vs. Yomiuri

Tokyo dropped both games against Yomiuri in a two game series that took place up in Nippon Ham's highly-modern domed stadium in Hokkaido.

Both contests were close, but neither worked out in Tokyo's favor. Once Uehara (1.59 era, 26 saves) comes on at the end of the game it's basically over. Furuta may have pulled Ishii a bit too early in the first game on Tuesday, and the bats got going a little too late during the game last night.

Tokyo is again 11.5 games behind third-place Hanshin.
