    The two announced pitchers were born at Fullerton, California. Former Dodger D. J. Houlton (WHIP=1.01) has a better repertoire than Brian Wolfe (WHIP=1.31). So although they would play at Sapporo Dome stil I think that Giants have the advantage in this game and the fact that the Fighters are in a must win situation could also help to make things tougher for the home team. Go Giants!

      I Think it hadn’t happened before in Nippon Series. It would be interesting to know. I hope Abe would be ready for tonight game. Let,s see if we can avoid to get tied up, Ken.
