    I finally get to see Karakawa pitch live tonight – I’ve been unlucky and keep missing his starts. I’ve missed like the last 4 in person! Sad because he’s my favorite pitcher.

      Not a great night for Karakawa, but the team still managed to win. Must have been a fun, if not nerve-racking, game to be at.

      And Lotte’s newest pickup, Castillo, had himself a pretty productive night.

    2. Steve

      VERY nerve racking game, but hey, we won. Too bad Karakawa was absolutely awful on his birthday. Castillo was amazing, though – offensively and defensively – and Okada also played a great game. He absolutely plowed into Ohno at the plate for that winning run.

    1. Steve

      Crazy, isn’t it? It’s not like there’s a ton of good defensive infielders with power running around, are there?
