I thought it was a sacrifice fly, but I didn’t slide because of the touch-up from the third base.
■ Giants-DeNA (22nd, Tokyo Dome)
Giants pitcher CC Mercedes missed one point on the 22nd with a painful base running. DeNA match at Tokyo Dome. When he was a third base runner and the fly went up to the left, he tried to touch up but ran through without sliding. He lost his support point due to a painful mistake.
Giants Walker’s hit ball went up deep into the left wing line with a one-point lead, two innings, one death, and third base. Enough distance for sacrifice fly. When Sano on the left wing caught, Mercedes touched up to home base. However, at the end, I ran through without slipping and touched out. The giant requested it, but the decision was not overturned.
Mercedes was hit by a tie solo to Sano in the third inning immediately after. It was a base running that I couldn’t regret.
