    It will be interesting to see how the Lions do after struggling down the stretch, and also if Glynn can keep pitching as well as he has over his last few starts.

    If I’m the Lions, I’d be a little worried about Wakui’s last few starts. He’s given up 12 runs over his last 2 starts (8.1 IP), and 24 over his last 6 (36 IP).

    The last game they played was also back on the 4th, which means they might not be quite as sharp (you can only do so much in practice and exhibition games).

    I think I like the Fighters’ chances right now.

    I was actually a little surprised that he got rocked so badly.

    And Nakajima was simply amazing: 4-for-5 with 2 homers, 3 rbis, and 3 runs scored.
