Congratulations Lions

Congratulations to the Seibu Lions, who won the Japan Series this morning with a 7-2 win over the Chunichi Dragons in Game 7.

Takashi Ishii won his second game of the series with six shutout innings; he didn’t give up an earned run in either game he pitched. A five-run third – all the runs scored with two outs – was keyed by a ten-pitch AB by leadoff hitter Tomoaki Sato that resulted in a single and the game’s first run. The inning was later capped by a two-run homer by Seibu slugger Alex Cabrera, and the Lions cruised the rest of the way to complete a comeback after having been down 3-2.
