Late Return, Hawks Back to work against Yakult

0 replies.

Sorry for the late return everyone. I decided post-finals, a bit of an extended break was in order (after checking my grades, my GPA is still at 2.95. I need at least a 2.5 to go to Japan for spring 2011). Now I'm refreshed and hopeful that the Hawks can pull off the three-peat of the Interleague championship.

It hasn't started well. The Hawks were swept in their two-game series at Nagoya Dome against the Chunichi Dragons, with losses of 1-5 and 1-3. The Dragons' pitching was efficient on all fronts, as Kazuki Yoshimi and Wei-Yin Chen both kept the Hawks bats silent, as the only offense SoftBank got came on solo home runs from Kawasaki (3) and Tamura (7).

The Hawks hope to get back on the winning track and make some headway in the standings at Meiji Jingu Stadium against the Yakult Swallows.
