Yakult Swallows: May 9, 2010

by on May.09, 2010 @ 10:57 am, under NPB

Three no so good things:

The Swallows have not won a series since they took two of three from the Yokohama Bay Stars between 4/2 and 4/4.  That's a total 10 series.

The Swallows lost their 6th game in a row.  The last time they lost 6 in a row was between 9/5/2009 and 9/13/2009.

The Swallows suffered their second walk-off loss in as many days.  And the last time that happened was back on 9/9 and 9/10 against the Hanshin Tigers.

...In 7 games so far this month, the Swallows have scored just 10 runs.  Take out the 5 runs they scored for their only victory this month (5/1 vs the Yokohama Bay Stars) and the Swallows' offense has produced just 5 runs over 6 games.

...Despite losing on Saturday, rookie Masato Nakazawa currently leads the Central League with a 1.47 ERA.  Nakazawa also gave up his third home run of the season.  FYI: all three of those home runs were hit on the first pitch.
