Nippon Ham Clinches Third

Nippon Ham Clinches Third
With a Magic Number of 2 going into tonight's play for third place, there was flying pork over grounded Eagles as the Fighters defeated Rakuten 17-0 at K-Stadium Miyagi. With that win for Nippon Ham's last game of the season, Lotte would have to be a perfect 3 and 0 on the way out.

However, it didn't happen.

At Chiba Marine Stadium this evening Shunsuke self destructed in the second inning and Lotte unsuccessfully played catch up the rest of the night. Seibu broke out of their losing streak just in time to eliminate Lotte from the race, winning 9-5.

Yes. This was really sad. Lotte having 3 games left needed to win all 3 but lost in the first game already.

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.
