Seibu Draft 1st place Rookie Sumita Pro's first pitching first victory

Seibu's first-place draft rookie Chihiro Sumida, who won his first professional pitch, said in an interview after the match, "I wanted to stick to the results in any way, so there are still many things to do, but I'm glad today." I did.



Pitcher Sumita was nominated in 1st place from the 4 teams, which was the most in the draft meeting last year, and joined Seibu from Nishinippon Institute of Technology.

Pitcher Sumita, a left-handed pitcher, has a variety of changing balls and outstanding control, and has been active as expected, starting in three games in the open game and marking an ERA of 1 point, and decided to enter the opening rotation.



He made his official debut on the 26th, starting with the match against Orix at his home base, Berna Dome, in Tokorozawa, Saitama Prefecture.



Pitcher Sumita threw seven innings against Orix, who won the league last season, with one hit and no runs, and won his first professional pitch.



Pitcher Sumita recalled, "I wanted to stick to the results in any way, so there are still many things to do, but I'm glad about today."



On the other hand, he said, "The theme was to go with all my strength from the first time, and because I went too hard, there was a part that was fluttering in the second half." I think the accuracy will be even better. "



Seibu's coach Hatsuhiko Tsuji said, "I was unexpectedly calm from the start. I was a powerful pitcher, and I sent it out with the conviction that he would make a match."

Giants Draft 1st place Many save 2 games in a row

A large number of pitchers who are newcomers to professional baseball and who are in charge of holding down have saved for two consecutive games since the opening game, saying, "I was able to experience the tension of the opening so I was able to go up to the mound with plenty of time." I looked back.



Many pitchers who joined the giant from Kansai University of International Studies in the first place in the draft have the fastest straight and fork of 158 km, and although they are newcomers, they have been entrusted with restraint from the end of the open game.



In the opening game, which was the first pitching for a professional, he went up to the mound in the 9th inning with a 2-point lead, and in the unique tension of the opening game, he saved and sweated with two hits and a dead ball, inviting a bases loaded and a pinch. It was the debut of things.



On the 26th, which was the second game, he went up to the mound 9 times with a 2-point lead, and on the 25th, when the first batter was struck out with 3 strikeouts, the batter who continued was also 3 strikeouts and the last batter. Also hit the center fly with 4 balls and saved 2 games in a row with only 10 balls.



After the match, he recalled the pitching, which was a series of pitches, saying, "I was able to experience the tension of the opening game yesterday, so I was able to go up to the mound with plenty of time."

On top of that, "I was advised by Director Hara to" suppress even 90% of the power ", so I threw it with a little less power under the leadership of the lower body. The ball speed may have been slower than yesterday, but even 90% is firm. I was able to suppress it and gained confidence in the future. "

Yakult starting pitcher Takahashi pitched well with no runs in the 7th inning

In Yakult, starting pitcher Keiji Takahashi pitched well with no runs in the 7th inning, and the team won the opening two consecutive games.



In his seventh year, pitcher Takahashi contributed to the team's number one in Japan by shining his success in the short-term decisive battle, such as winning his first shutout victory in last year's Japan Series against Orix.

However, since the number of winning stars in the regular season was only four, the goal is to "keep the rotation for one year".



On the 26th, he started for the first time this season at Kyocera Dome Osaka, which was a good pitcher in the Japan Series.

In the opening round, he held down the Hanshin Tigers with 15 hits.



From the middle stage, I showed pitching that makes the best use of slowness and speed while interweaving sliders in the 110 kg range, and even if I repeated innings, I could not focus on the opponent.



In the 7th inning, 2 dead balls led to a 2-out bases loaded pinch, but Hanshin's pinch hitter, Rojas, was hit by a 149km straight on the second fly and got off the mound with 93 balls in the 7th inning. ..



Pitcher Takahashi said, "I'm glad I was able to compete in the strike zone without being afraid. I'm glad I was able to get results because I think I'll do this."
