Wrap-up – Road of Death & Welcome Home

The Tigers completed their annual 3-week long road trip on Thursday in Tokyo. As I was away from Japan for most of it, I will simply post all the scores here without commenting on the action. For the record, they went 6-9 on their road trips, winning just one of their 5 series, and 5-1 at Kyocera Dome, their “home away from home.” Their return to Koshien was not a pleasant one, as they took only one of three from the lowly Swallows. Here are all the scores:

August 3week recap

So after three weeks of mediocre ball, the Tigers sit in third place, within striking distance of the Carp, and a few games back of the Giants. Here are the standings:

August 31 Standings

The week ahead sees the Tigers enjoying three games at Koshien Stadium against the Baystars followed by three on the road against the Dragons. DeNA is on a roll, but hopefully playing at home can prod the Tigers to cool them off. Chunichi, on the other hand, is slumping terribly. This gives the Tigers a great opportunity to move up in the standings. GO TIGERS!
