Very slowly the Tigers are clawing their way back into the race and after opening day’s hit parade they’re doing it on pitching.
Three shutout games against the Giants. Who could ask for more? Expect, well, maybe for 3 wins, not just two and a draw. But hey, no complaining here. Not after 41 scoreless innings. And especially not after Shintaro Fujinami notched up his first NPB win against the Baystars.
I’m not quite convinced yet, but it seems the Tigers are at least back on track to compete.
