Yomiuri Giants: April 2, 2012

by on Apr.02, 2012 @ 11:41 pm, under NPB

Kentaro Nishimura recorded his first save since September 6, 2007 (vs Chunichi at Nagoya Dome).


Hisayoshi Chono was named the team's third Red Cross Support Leader.  The Giants started the support program in 2008; the first two leaders were Shinnsouke Abe and Hayato Sakamoto.


Shuichi Murata will donate 10,000 yen to his newborn baby healthcare support fund for every RBI he records this season.


Toshiya Sugiuchi is 8-0 in his first starts of the year.  He also became just the second player in franchise history to stop a team losing streak with their first start (after arriving from another team).  The other player: Osamu Kubota in 1966.


TV Ratings for the home opener (Nippon TV, Kanto Region, 19:00-20:43): 11.8%.

    Nice ratings. Now if only they could show the entire games and not cut out before they end.
