It is a stamina of monstrous strength.
Yokohama Baystars right-hander Trevor Bauer (32) stopped with 10 wins ahead. He started against the Hanshin Tigers at Yokohama Stadium on the 20th and pitched 8 innings and allowed 2 runs, but he did not receive any help from the other line. With the score trailing 0-2, the mound was handed over, and Yokohama suffered a 0-2 loss. Throwing 120 pitches against 33 batters, Bauer gave up nine hits and struck out six more.
Bauer, who was on a three-game winning streak, became a losing pitcher. 9-4, 2.78 ERA. Hanshin starter Masashi Ito achieved a shutout victory with 6 hits and no runs in 9 innings.
Incredible durability, endurance. Unlike Japanese pitchers, Bauer is pitching every 5-6 days. On the 15th, he started against the Yakult Swallows and threw 109 pitches in 7 innings, making his second start this week. In his first midweek game, he gave up 8 hits and 3 runs and became the winning pitcher.
He threw 100 or more pitches in all of the last 6 games until the Hanshin War on the 20th, recording a quality start plus (7 or more innings, 3 earned runs or less).안전놀이터
He overpowered three batters in the top of the first inning. 1st baseman Koji Chikamoto grounded 1st baseman, 2nd baseman Takumu Nakano grounded 2nd baseman grounder and 3rd baseman Shota Morishita caught a catcher foul fly. All three players were hit with fastballs between 150 and 152 km per hour.
In the top of the second inning, after one death, he was hit in a row and was in danger. He got a right-handed hit by Sheldon Noyce in the 5th and a dominant double by Teruaki Sato in the 6th. 1 company 2nd, 3rd base.
He then guided Seishiro Sakamoto to a grounder on third base and caught third base runner Noyce. I wanted to take a breather, but in the 2nd, 1st and 3rd bases, I got a right-handed hit by Seiya Kinami, the 8th.
In the top of the 3rd inning, he overcame the run crisis well. He sent out Nakano 2nd with a straight walk and Oyama 4th with a right-handed hit. I threw 4 fastballs at 151-153 km/h to Nakano, but they slightly missed the strike zone. Against Oyama, he threw only breaking balls. The third pitch slider led to a hit. In the following 2nd base, 1st and 2nd base, Noyce 5 was caught with a 1st foul fly.
In the beginning of the 4th inning, it was blocked in the crisis of conceding. After sending out lead hitter Sato with a heavy hit, he became 2nd and 3rd base with a sacrifice hit and an infield grounder. He got a right-handed hit from pitcher Ito at the right time. A 154km/h fastball thrown into the middle of the strike zone from 1B hit right handedly.
In the beginning of the 5th inning, he caught 2nd and 3rd with an infield grounder, and then allowed a heavy hit to Oyama in the 4th. He then struck out Noyce on a swing, ending the inning. Then, in the beginning of the 6th inning, he turned three batters 6 to 8 into a series of hits with two strikeouts.
After throwing 97 pitches through the 6th inning, Bauer got on the mound in the 7th inning. The lead hitter, pitcher No. 9, hit another hit. A low course outside of 153 km/h led to a left-handed hit. In the second out and second base that followed, he threw a slider to Morishita at number 3 and struck out with a swing. 110 pitches.
Bauer climbed the mound with courage in the 8th inning. Bauer, who struck out Sato on a swing with a knuckle curve after two deaths, raised both hands and roared and moved to the dugout.
It is noteworthy that he gave up two hits to opposing starting pitcher Ito. Before the game, Ito was recording 10.3 (3 hits in 29 at-bats).
Bauer got two hits from opposing starter Hiroki Tokoda in the game against the Hiroshima Carp on July 17th. Tokoda, who went on base twice, managed to score both times. Bauer took the loss even after pitching 7 innings and allowing 2 runs.
Bauer said in an interview after winning 9 wins against Yakult on the 15th, “My goal is to win 15 or more and win the Sawamura Award.”
It was blocked by Hanshin, but if we maintain the current pace, we will be able to achieve our goal.
