Yomiuri Giants (6-2-1) vs Yokohama DeNA BayStars (6-3)

Tuesday, June 30th, 6:35 AM EDT

Projected starters

RHP Shosei Togoh (1-0, 2.70 ERA) vs LHP Haruhiro Hamaguchi (1-0, 0.00)

Game Preview

The two top teams in the Central League will collide Tuesday, as the Giants will host the BayStars at the Tokyo Dome to begin a three-game series. The series will feature several former MLB players and some of the best Japanese players in the league, so it should be one of the best series of the young season. Shosei Togoh will get the nod for the Giants. He looked quite good in his first start of the season, as he allowed just two runs in 6.2 innings while earning a win. The BayStars will counter with a lefty, Haruhiro Hamaguchi, who tossed 8.1 scoreless frames in his debut, although he did allow 10 hits. It remains to be seen how he'll handle the top team in the Central League.
