One comment on “Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters 4 – Saitama Seibu Lions 9 (August 11, 2011)

  1. Tim

    The Lions’ offense always go mad everytime Kikuchi Yusei pitchs. Hope this helps the boy gain more confidence. Though having 2-0 record, Ichi-gun still seems too big shirts for him. 6.75 ERA is unbelievable for the 2-0 record.
