With Wang and Kuo out, Tsao down...and a rash of others NPB'ers hurt or in the minors, the Yomiuri Giants Chien-Ming Chiang gave us a reason to cheer after winning his first start of the season in the team's home opener. Chiang pitched 7 strong innings against the Dragons, allowing 2 runs (via the longball) on 5 hits. He had 1 K and was clocked at a game-high of 88 mph. Chiang was selected co-MVP of the game along with teammate M. Ogasawara. The Giants prevailed 7-2 on Tuesday.
