Discussion in the Tiger Tails forum
August 5th - Some game
Sometimes a pitcher is rubbish but wins. This was the case with Messenger who was abysmal and gave up eight (seven earned) runs. However, Yagi who had done so well in his previous starts started poorly then seemed to suffer a problem with his leg and had to be replaced. The Swallows bullpen imploded spectacularly with Takahiro Arai blasting a Grand Slam in the first innings. Everyone helped themselves to runs from the starting team except Uemoto and Shunsuke. Messenger kind of redeemed himself with 4 RBIs. When was the last time a Tigers pitcher did that? Still sense prevailed on the Tigers bench and given how poor Messenger was he was wisely removed once he had completed the necessary 5 innings. The final score was 20-11 Tigers. Normally, after such a blowout their bats go quiet but this time one can expect the same from the highly embarrassed and humiliated Swallows.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
