Shimoyanagi vs Masui

Bitter defeat for our veteran Shimoyanagi, who gave up 4 runs in two innings, not being able to finish the second one. At least Fighters' starter Masui was KO him too. If his name was spelled Mazui that would explain a lot of things (Japanese-speakers will understand).

The level of the Pacific League is higher (since pitchers do not bat), but even so I can't understand how a team which is in second place can lose against a team in sixth place with a difference of four points. And playing at home.

Here are the highlights:

There were nice plays anyway: Hirano's defense, Nishimura's pitching, and of curse, Johjima's homerun followed by another one from Brazell in the 4th innig. We even thought that they could win.

The video of the homeruns, because it's always a delight:
