Iwase Breaks Saves Record
[ Author: westbaystars | Posted: Oct 2, 2005 7:58 AM | YBS Fan ]

And one day later, Iwase overtakes Sasaki with his 46th save of this season. Coming in against the Hiroshima Carp on October 1 at Nagoya Dome with a 6-3 lead, Iwasa threw to five batters, giving up two hits and striking out one. Iwase is currently 1 and 2 with 46 saves and an ERA of 1.88 in 60 games.

The save preseved the win for Nakazato who came in to pitch the 6th inning trailing 1-2. Chunichi scored 2 in the bottom of the 6th to take the lead for good. This was the first appearance for Nakazato in four years.

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.
