Swallows: RHP Daiki Yoshida (0-1, 8.59 ERA)

Game Preview

The Dragons and the Swallows will collide once again Friday, and both teams are riding different runs of form at the moment. The Swallows have performed better and currently sit in second place of the Central League standings, while coming off two straight wins. On the other hand, the Dragons are dead last in the standings with just 13 wins while winning just once in their last four contests. The pitching matchup will feature two winless hurlers, as Yudai Ohno will get the ball for the Dragons and Daiki Yoshida will take the ball for the Swallows. The numbers favor Ohno, but the Swallows have the better offense so Yoshida might have a real shot of earning his first win of the season here.
