Notice of Site Renovation

So much of this site is jumbled up and half done with the new theme. Frankly, despite the number of people who like it, it's driving me crazy. I hate to look at it and call this my work. So the Player Meikan section is coming down until I've had time to clean it up and bring it up to speed with the rest of the site.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Getting closer ( Tiger Tails ) Just when I thought it was possible to go back to full game reviews I hit a busy period and have to stick with summaries for a bit longer. This series was a very good series to win and saw some excellent performances with - of course - the usual Wada caveat. The first game of the series, won 3-0 against Mr Smug (Sawamura) was notable for Iwata's excellent pitching over eight innings. Not only did he keep Giants off the board but he only took 103 pitches over his eight innings. Of course one must also mention the superb work of Umeno behind the plate who also drove in two of the runs (the other coming from a wild pitch from a tiring Sawamura and a bit of poor catching by Abe). Oh closed out the game picking up his 300th save (both Korea and Japan) and received a bouquet after the game.
