    He also gets to face a healthy Godzilla, should be interesting.

    Wang against Uehara… has 2 Asian pitchers ever started the same game in MLB?

    I don’t know of any specific instances, but I would be surprised if it hasn’t happened before.

    With Wang, Chan-Ho Park, Nomo, Ohka, Ishii, et al. There had been Asian pitcher matchups before.

    Uehara did alright in his debut, 5 ip, 1 er, 1 k, 1 bb, left with a 7-1 lead.
