Game Preview

The third game of the three-game set between the Chunichi Dragons and the Hiroshima Toyo Carp will be played Sunday, and both teams have split wins thus far. The Dragons won the series opener 3-2, but the Carp offense exploded in Game 2 as they scored 19 runs on route to a 19-4 victory. Game 3 seems to be an important game for both teams, as both sit near the bottom of the Central League standings – Chunichi are in fifth place, while the Carp are in fourth place but have four fewer wins than the third-placed team, the Yokohama DeNA BayStars. The pitching matchup for the series finale will feature Kodai Umetsu for the Dragons and Atsushi Endoh for the Carp. Neither pitcher inspires a lot of confidence, but Endoh's struggles are for real – he has allowed 11 runs while giving up 12 hits in just 10 innings of work as a starter. He posted a 3.16 ERA as a reliever in 2019.
