      Yeah. I’m guessing the Swallows started Yoshinori over Ishikawa Thursday night because Yoshinori was 4-0 against the Carp prior to the loss. And while Ishikawa is working on a three game winning streak against the Carp, he has also pitched better against the Tigers this season than Yoshinori (Yoshinori – 3 G, 1-2, 5.60 ERA, 1.53 WHIP vs Ishikawa – 3 G, 1-1, 2.79 ERA, 1.09 WHIP).

      So pitching Yoshinori Thursday night and Ishikawa Friday night actually makes a lot more sense.

    Yakult has to take some chances if they want to overtake a powerful Yomiuri team. With five games to go against the Giants and four against the Dragons, this is a tough stretch that will require the team to go with their best starters on short rest just to have a crack.
