Greisinger and Ishii

Greisinger (14-5) pitched a gem last night! He faced only 30 batters in a complete-game-shutout that included 10 strikeouts, no walks, and only three base hits.

W: Greisinger (14-5, 2.50 era)
L: Hasegawa (1-4, 3.35 era)

This evening, Ishii (7-8) picked up his first win since July 8th by giving up only four hits and two runs. He walked one, beaned another, and struck out eight in 7 1/3 innings of work.

Miyade hit his second home run in as many nights, and catcher Kawamoto went three for four (including his fourth home run of the season). Tanaka also went three for four and raised his average to .297 which is absolutely shocking when you compare it with how he was hitting at the beginning of this season (which was probably about the same as my ability level).

Tokyo 5 -- 3 Hiroshima
W: Ishii (7-8, 4.16 era)
L: Aoki (3-10, 5.30 era)
