Japan Series: Fighters up 3-1
|Fighters one win away from the Japan Series Title|
By Glenn Davies,Tokyo Japan.The Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters are just one win away from winning the Japan series title after beating the Chunichi Dragons 3-1 on Wednesday night. Satoru Kanemura (9-6 4.48)pitched 5 shutout innings and the offense was provided by Atsunori Inaba's with a two-run double in the 5th inning. Kanemura was far from perfect
giving up five hits and seven walks, but Chunichi failed to get the job done with runners on base or in scoring position.
Game 5 will be played Thursday at Sapporo Dome in Hokkiado.
