The Hiroshima Carp look unstoppable. That’s a bit hyperbolic this early in the year, yes, but it doesn’t feel that way when the Carp have been busy taking apart opposing pitching staffs after falling behind by a run or two.

On Thursday night at Tokyo Dome, the Carp entered the ninth inning trailing by a run. They put seven on the board to win 11-5. On Wednesday, they were down 2-0 after the first inning and responded with two runs in the second and four in the third. The night before that, Hiroshima entered the sixth inning trailing 3-0 and proceeded to score six in the sixth and three more in the seventh.
