    China Sharks game times changed

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 December 29日 Monday

    All times for the China Sharks weekend home games in January 2009 have been changed to 15:00 starts. The 4 games will be on 10th and 11th against the Nippon Paper Cranes, and the 17th and 18th against the Oji Eagles to cap off the Sharks home schedule. The weekday dates against the same opponents will start at the originally scheduled 19:05 face off time. (There was a notice on the AL site landing page in Japanese but not English, so I’m just reproducing the notice in English here.)

    2008 Japan Series Game 7

    Posted by japanstats on 2008 November 9日 Sunday

    The 2008 version of the Japan Series went the distance and game 7 will start at 18:15 JST. The Yomiuri Giants have the firepower, but misfired during game 6 where Saitama Seibu Lions pitcher Takayuki Kishi came into the game in the 4th inning on 2 days rest and managed to silence the Giants bats for the rest of the game. The lack of clutch hitting did the Lions in on game 5, so the fortunes had just reversed, karma, I suppose. The Lions are, unfortunately, rather short on arms and the all important game 7 starter is expected to be either struggling veteran Fumiya Nishiguchi (5.03ERA during regular season) or Kazuhisa Ishii who got lit up earlier in game 2. Expect to see those two pitchers and also game 1 and 5 starter Hideaki Wakui used in the game as well, the bullpen will be used only after that, the Lions Manager Watanabe just doesn’t seem to trust his relievers at this point at all (being a former star starting pitcher may have something to do with it). For those of you outside of Japan, you should be able to watch a live streaming of the game from here:
