[7/21/2017] Dean Green fined for Ni-gun ejection on July 20

Dean Green was ejected from a Ni-gun game against the Rakuten Eagles on July 20 for an offensive argument with an umpire (specifically, the umpire’s call on a check swing in the eighth inning). The NPB Commissioner’s Office announced today that they issued Green a stern warning and a 50,000 yen fine for the ejection.

[7/13/2017] Another rough patch for the Yakult Swallows

The Yakult Swallows ended the first-half of the season with their second ten-game losing streak of the year.

  • May 30 – June 10: 0-10-1
  • July 1 – July 12: 0-10-1

The Swallows are the first team to record two or more losing streaks of ten or more in one season since Rakuten recorded two eleven-game losing streaks in 2005. For the Swallows, this was the third time they recorded two losing streaks of ten or more in franchise history: fourteen-game and ten-game losing streaks in 1950 and sixteen-game and two eleven-game losing streaks in 1970.

Since 1951, the Swallows are the third team to record two losing streaks of ten or more before the All-Star break. The other two teams: the Yosyo Robbins in 1954 (eleven-game losing streak between April 10 and 25 and twelve-game losing streak between April 28 and May 16); and the Takahashi Unions in 1956 (twelve-game losing streak between March 25 and April 14 and twelve-game losing streak between May 6 and 23).
