Game Preview

The Marines and the Buffaloes have had opposite seasons so far. The Marines currently sit at the top of the Pacific League with a 7-1 mark following the first eight games and have won each of their last seven contests. The Buffaloes, on the other hand, sit at the bottom with a 1-7 mark and five straight losses. On paper, the Marines are strong candidates to complete the sweep here. The pitching matchup for this contest will feature Manabu Mima for the Marines and Yoshinobu Yamamoto for the Buffaloes. Both are coming off a win in their opening starts of the campaign, although Yamamoto was more impressive, tossing eight scoreless innings, fanning 10 and allowing just three hits. That start led to the Buffaloes' lone win of the season.
