Playing great

The Carp are playing great in the series. The pitching has been fantastic and Eldred in particular has come up big with his bat. He has a home run in each of the three games making him the first Hiroshima player ever to hit home runs in 3 consecutive Nippon Series games.

The Carp won each of the first two games 5 to 1 and Johnson bested Ohtani in game 1. Kuroda couldn't come away with a win from Game 3 even though he pitched OK (5.2 innings and only 1 run allowed. The Carp led for much of the game but Nippon Ham went ahead in the 8th by a score of 3 to 2. Hiroshima has been scrappy all season and they fought back to tie the game. They lost it 4 to 3 finally but the effort and the pitching were still impressive.
