Japan Times: Sawamura, Chono lead Giants to win

Hey, there’s still baseball…

Hirokazu Sawamura made his Japan Series debut by hitting a pair of batters in the first inning.

A friendly tap on the head from catcher Shinnosuke Abe, and a leadoff home run by Hisayoshi Chono got the second-year right-hander back on track and the Yomiuri Giants one step closer to another celebration.

Sawamura threw eight shutout innings, and Chono’s home run was the difference as the Giants outlasted a valiant effort by Hokkaido Nippon Ham starter Masaru Takeda to beat the Fighters 1-0 in Game 2 of the Japan Series on Sunday at Tokyo Dome.

In Game 1 John Bowker hit a three-run homer. I knew he'd have some great days with the Giants eventually.

Stupid Giants. If I was Japanese, I'd be known on Yakyu Think Factory as the guy who hates the Giants.

I wish these games were televised in the U.S.

That would be awesome.

I do have to wonder why the heck MLB Network doesn't do it. I mean, show the whole thing during the morning, then maybe show a compressed version later on a tape delay. Maybe they can get something like this done when they and NPB do another one of their gentlemen's agreement things over free agency and the posting system and such.
