Personal favorites that I wrote
Chiba moves on to next round in PL playoffs

The Chiba Lotte Marines won their first round playoff series against the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks with a 4-0 win at home (I had earlier said the game would be in Fukuoka) which was my error.

Here is the boxscore. There was a 3-run triple by Saburo Ohmura in the sixth for the decisive hit.

Trust me on this. I'm mostly right. English language story.

The Marines play Nippon Ham starting Saturday in a best of five to decide the Pacific League champion.

Yes, I know...

It is "Nippon Ham" and "Fighters".

Nonetheless, like many people I can never avoid thinking about Nippon "Ham Fighters". "Ham Fighting" really sounds like something that Drew Carey would be good at.

Man, サブロー really went berserk. They just didn't have an answer for him.

After サブロー cleared the bases with a triple, he scored on a squeeze play.

By the #5 hitter.

Omura's triple puts Lotte into 2nd stage of Climax Series

Could it BE any dirtier? 2nd Stage? AHAHAHAHAH!

There are three more Climax Series to go, one in the PL and two in the CL.

I guess you can buy certain pharmaceuticals over the counter in Japan.

If your Climax Series lasts longer than six hours, please consult a doctor.
