Professional baseball pitcher Kaima Taira set a new record for professional baseball in the interleague game with Chunichi on the 13th, with no goals in nine innings and 32 consecutive games since the opening.
Pitcher Taira was in line with the professional baseball record marked by Shinji Tajima of Chunichi in 2016, five years ago, with no runs in 31 consecutive games since the opening of the game on the 10th of this month.
Then, in the exchange game with Chunichi held at MetLife Dome, which is based in Japan, he went up to the mound as the fourth person in the 9th inning with a 4-3 and 1-point lead.
Pitcher Taira was hit by infield hits by the lead player, Viciedo, but he kept the trail tight and set a new record for professional baseball with no runs in 32 consecutive games since the opening.
Pitcher Taira is 21 years old from Okinawa prefecture.
With a straight of 160km at the fastest and a sharp changing ball, he won the rookie of the year with 33 holds in 2nd place in the league last season.
This season, the fourth year, has won 1 win and 6 saves, and has 21 holds at the top of the league.
In a hero interview after the match, pitcher Taira said, "I'm glad I didn't get any points. I think it's an accumulation of one match per match. I want to continue to do my best."
In the future, pitcher Taira will aim to break 34 games in the Pacific League's consecutive games without any goals, and 38 games in the professional baseball record held by Kyuji Fujikawa, who retired from active duty in the Hanshin Tigers last year.
