Start Time: 18:00
The series is currently tied at 1-1.
NOTES: Big game for Uehara. I'm guessing there will be scouts in the stands to see what kind of stuff he has. Giants need to win tonight in order to make sure the momentum doesn't shift too much in favor of the Dragons.
8:19PM UPDATE: Ogasawara has 2 home runs (2-run, grand slam) and both Ramirez (2-run) and Lee (solo) have have hit home runs for the Giants. All 9 runs the Giants have scored have come on their four home runs.
The two runs the Dragons scored have also come on home runs -- solo shots by Morino and Hirata.
The Giants are threatening again in the bottom of the 8th. They have runners on first and second with 1 out and Ogasawara at the plate.
8:44PM UPDATE: The Giants ended up scoring 2 more runs in their bottom of the 8th.
The game is currently in the top of the 9th with runners on first and second with two outs. Nakamura is in the batter's box.
8:46PM UPDATE: Nakamura hits a dribbler in front of the mound and gets thrown out at first. Game over. Giants beat the Dragons, 11-2.
