Included in the mid-fifth pitching with the condition that “if you keep winning”
■ Softbank 6-0 Lotte (19th, PayPay Dome)
Softbank pitcher Kodai Senga started the game against Lotte (PayPay Dome) on the 19th and showed good pitching without hits up to the 7th inning. In the 8th inning, Fujioka was allowed to hit infield for the first time on this day, and when he gave a walk to Oka, Softbank started a succession plan. Senga had 106 balls and 4 leads in the 8th. Why did you change Ace / Senga when you could aim for a complete game?
Lotte, who is in a fierce battle for the lead, won a 6-0 victory when it was over. The driving force was, of course, Ace Senga. Manager Kimiyasu Kudo was worried about the beginning of his right arm, which he faced on the 8th of the middle, saying, “Because there is a gap between pitches, I can’t stand up …” before the match. After one death, the ball became a ball for six consecutive balls, and the commander’s “expectation” was right, but Nakamura was double-played from the first base without death. Director Kudo also recalls, “I think there was a place where I felt that I could play that double play.”
He showed no hits and no runs until the 7th inning, but finally allowed a hit in the 8th inning, and walked to 1st and 2nd base. Bench decided to continue casting here.
Director Kudo said, “Since it changed from hitting one (hit), I think I was aiming for (no hits and no points). It was difficult to make good conditioning, but he showed a good start, “he acknowledged Ace’s responsiveness, and there was also a story that the trainer got tense. I’m thinking about the 5th day if I continue, so I changed it because there was a talk from the trainer. “
Although the commander said with the condition that “if he continues to win,” Chiga himself will have a double-digit victory for six consecutive years, so even if he does not advance to CS, he will pitch for Lotte in the middle of the 5th. It is likely to let you.
