This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy NPB series.

Yomiuri Giants (10-5-1) vs Tokyo Yakult Swallows (9-7-1)

Projected Starters

RHP Angel Sanchez (2-1, 2.63 ERA) vs RHP Yasuhiro Ogawa (2-0, 5.19 ERA)

Game Preview

Friday's game between these two teams got postponed, but both saw action during Thursday's slate – while the Giants fell 2-1 against the Hanshin Tigers, the Swallows secured an 8-6 win over the Chunichi Dragons. That said, the Giants remain the team to beat in the Central League with a 10-5-1 record, while the Swallows sit in second place of the standings with a 9-7-1 record. The pitching matchup here will feature two righties, as Angel Sanchez will take the ball for the Giants and Yasuhiro Ogawa will get the nod for the Swallows. Sanchez has been the better pitcher of the two by a wide margin – he enters this contest with a 2.63 ERA and just four runs allowed in 13.2 innings. Meanwhile, Ogawa has posted a 5.19 ERA. That could be troublesome when facing a tough lineup as the Giants' one.
