The Seibu Lions are still pretty much unbeatable when Zach Neal is on the rubber.

The Lions' opening day starter took the mound on Friday against the Chiba Lotte Marines and — spoiler alert — Seibu won.

Neal may not have factored into the decision, but he kept his team in the game, allowing two runs over six innings for his 14th quality start in 23 games, including last season.
