HANSHIN TIGERS 12 YAKULT SWALLOWS 5

二十安打! BATTING LINE-UP EXCELS AGAIN

久保勝利 KUBO GETS THE WIN

また優勝戦争続けます! THE WAR FOR FIRST PLACE CONTINUES

This game was impressive for all the reasons we’ve come to expect from the Tigers this season. A barrage of hits- 20 in all, included 5 home runs. On form were:

Murton – 4 hits from 5 at bats
Hirano – 3 hits from 4 at bats
Toritani – 4 from 5, including a HR
Brazell – Home run 39
Kanemoto – 3 from 4, including a HR
Johjima – Home runs 25 and 26

Also on form was Kubo, who pitched for six innings with seven strikeouts and 4 hits. Yet Yomiuri also won, and yet again this season looks like its going to go right down to the wire. As long as we keep hitting like this, however, it’s easy to enjoy. As Yahoo.co.jp nicely put it, まだまだ終わらぬ虎祭り!
