Dragons Japan Series Champs!

by on Nov.01, 2007 @ 7:57 am, under NPB

The Chunichi Dragons beat the Ham Fighters behind an amazing performance by Daisuke Yamai. He tossed 8 perfect innings and struck out 6 hitters. Iwase came in for the 9th and pitched a perfect inning of relief with 1 strikeout.

Tough game to lose for Darvish. He really only faltered once when he gave up a run in the bottom of the second on a sac fly. Darvish threw 7 innings and gave up 1 run on 5 hits, 11 strikeouts, and 2 walks.

Final score: Dragons 1 - Fighters 0

Here are Darvish's linescore and final post-season totals.
