Pitcher Roki Sasaki of professional baseball Lotte said, "I want to do my best so that I can throw a long inning by holding it firmly at 0" for the starting pitcher of the Rakuten game to be held at ZOZO Marine Stadium in Chiba City on July 1. I made a comment.

Pitcher Sasaki has started 12 games so far this season, with 6 wins and 1 loss and an ERA of 1.56, taking 114 strikeouts at the top of the 12 teams.

Last time, he pitched in the Seibu match held at ZOZO Marine Stadium on June 22nd, and won the first star in about a month with a good throw that took 7 strikeouts and no runs.

On July 1st, pitcher Sasaki will start the Rakuten match at ZOZO Marine Stadium on the 8th.

I haven't pitched in the Rakuten game since March 27, the first pitching of this season, and at that time I couldn't win or lose with 3 runs in 6 innings.

On the 30th, pitcher Sasaki made adjustments with catch balls and running for about 3 hours at the Urawa stadium of the 2nd army in preparation for the 1st pitch.

Pitcher Sasaki commented through the team, "I want to keep it firmly at 0 and do my best to throw long innings."

Lotte is currently 35 wins, 36 losses and 1 draw after 72 games, and is aiming to return to a 50% win rate since April by pitching pitcher Sasaki.
