September 4th - The Old Dinosaur

Yes Miura is still pitching with the BayStars and there is still life in the olde dogie yer. However, not enough to overcome a Tigers who even though handicapped with Tsuruoka behind the plate were always able to come back. Iwazaki started and was handed a one run lead which he promptly lost. Tigers then took the lead on a Gomez home run but then next innings Kuwahara got on base. With one out Blanco was next and you knew he was going to hit a home run which he did 3-2 BayStars. Tigers then got runners on in the sixth and Wada went with the pinch hitters - three of them (someone must have told him that a bunch is better than a single surgical strike and besides which he doesn't have Hiyama anymore). Saka drove in a run and then Uemoto added two more. Of course with Tsuruoka gone that meant that Umeno had to handle the relief which he did like a veteran guiding Andoh out of a crisis and holding the victory 5-3. Incidentally, Uemoto got another at bat after his two run hit and Wada had him bunt! What kind of stupidity is that?
