Week in Review: June 4 - June 10

Chunichi was swept by Seibu to start the week, extending their losing streak to 4 games and allowing Yomiuri to pass them in the standings.  The Dragons then bounced back to sweep Rakuten and finished the week by scratching across a 9th-inning run for a 1-1 tie against Nippon Ham on Sunday.  The 3-game unbeaten streak allowed Chunichi to reclaim the CL lead and they currently hold 1-game led over the Giants.  The offense didn't put up a lot of runs this week, but there were some clutch moments.
  • Kazuhiro Wada hit a 2-run walkoff home run to be Rakuten 3-2 on Friday night.
  • Solid ni-gun performances this past week for Kazuki Yoshimi and Kenshin Kawakami.  Both are working their way back from injury.  Yoshimi threw 3 scoreless innings and Kawakami threw 6 scoreless in his start.
