Yokohama Bay Stars

Shun Yamaguchi may have lost his job as closer after he let Friday's game against the Nippon Ham Fighters get away from him -- he entered the game in the top of the 9th with a one-run lead and gave up a lead-off double, uncorked a wild pitch, let the game-tying run score on a single to left, allowed the base-runner on first to advance to second on a stolen base and onto third on a sac bunt, struck out a hitter for the second out of the inning, intentionally walked a batter to put runners on the corner, unleashed another wild pitch to give away the lead, and struck out a hitter to finally end the inning.

    I was at the game yesterday and Yamaguchi was terrible. He needs to be banished from ever touching a baseball again and deported back to Siberia along with his Siberian husband.
