Tokyo Drops its 5th in a Row

Iihara had another error tonight. He let the winning run reach base in the bottom of the 9th. A single by Sheets and an intentional walk for Kanemoto meant that it was Sakurai's turn to be the hero. A base hit to center field was all it took. Game over.

Tokyo 2--3 Hanshin
W: Fujikawa (4-2, 36 saves)
L: Tateyama (3-11, 1 save)

Dark Cloud: You guessed it...relief pitching.

Silver Lining:
Kawashima gave up only one run in six innings of work. He scattered five hits and had seven strikeouts against two walks.

Ramirez went four for four and accounted for both of Tokyo's runs (thanks to his 22nd homer of the season). His league-leading batting average now sits at .353.
