Bye bye Climax series

Discussion in the Tiger Tails forum
Bye bye Climax series
Tigers cannot realistically reach the Climax Series now. The error ridden loss to the Giants put paid to that hope and the home team lost 4-2. What was also interesting was that the crowd was 36,231. This never happens in a Tigers/Giants game at Koshien. Tickets were always like gold dust and it is an indicator of how disillusioned fans are with Kanemoto's inept management and his team's performance. Sakamoto had again to be replaced behind the plate and the wonder is why he is persevered with. Better a motivated Haraguchi who will at least drive in runs and holds the No. 5 spot on merit. Tigers scoring was courtesy of Takayama and Fukudome both who had RBI singles. Two of Giants runs came directly from Tigers errors but let us hope the team has now got that out of their system and can do better in the two upcoming games.
About

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.
