On Friday night at Tokyo Dome, the Seibu Lions and Yomiuri Giants each sent their ace to the mound, creating a marquee matchup of the Lions' Yusei Kikuchi vs. the Kyojin's Tomoyuki Sugano.

Unsurprisingly, it drew some "major" attention.

Sitting among the 45,533 fans were scouts from the Diamondbacks, Indians, (San Francisco) Giants, Mariners, Phillies, Pirates, Red Sox, Tigers and other major league teams.
