Kazuki Yoshimi looking to go 5-0 against the Giants this year

Kazuki Yoshimi (CHU) will be starting Thursday's game against the Yomiuri Giants at Tokyo Dome.  If Yoshimi manages to win tonight's game, he could become the first pitcher in franchise history to win at least 5 games against the Giants in one season since Masahiro Yamamoto in 1997.  Yoshimi could also become the third pitcher in franchise history to go 5-0 against the Giants in one season.  The other two: Kentaro Ogawa in 1967 and Jun Misawa in 1935.

Should be an interesting game for Yoshimi.  I'll let the numbers dot he talking.
