Are you gradually adapting to the big league stage? Japanese pitcher Shintaro Fujinami (29, Oakland Athletics) recorded no runs in five consecutive games.토토사이트

On the 9th (Korean time), Fujinami took the mound at the end of the 8th inning against the Boston Red Sox, 3-10, at Fenway Park, Massachusetts, USA. He stepped on the mound with the score wide open and was hit by Alex Verdugo after two shots, but he caught Triston Casas with a fly to left field and finished the inning without conceding. Fujinami, who had no runs in five consecutive games since the match against the New York Yankees on the 29th of last month, lowered his ERA to 9.14 (9.35 before the game).

Compared to the beginning of the season, it has definitely changed. In his first appearance (starting) against the Los Angeles Angels on April 2, Fujinami soared to 30.86 with an ERA of 5 hits and 8 runs in 2 1/3 innings. After that, he played as a swing man between the starter and the bullpen, but his earned run average rarely reached single digits. After repeatedly giving up runs, he finally lowered his ERA to 9.80 with one scoreless inning against the Chicago White Sox on the 1st. And he’s steadily lowering the numbers. In the last 7 games (1 start), he went 2-1 with an earned run average of 2.25 and an on-base allowed per inning (WHIP) of 1.00. His highest speed before Boston was 102 miles (164.2 km / h).

Fujinami is familiar to baseball fans in Korea as a rival of Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels), who is the same age as him when he joined Nippon Professional Baseball (NPB) in 2013. Last winter, she signed with Oakland on a one-year, $3 million (3.9 billion won) short-term contract. But he self-defeated, allowing 17 walks in 18 2/3 innings in an exhibition game.

The opening position was a starter, but it was eventually pushed to the bullpen due to the difficulty of the ball, and the formula of ‘walking = conceding’ continued after that. After repeating self-destruction on the mound, he began to rebound in July. The result of three games in July is 2 wins, undefeated average ERA ‘0 (3 innings, 1 hit, 6 strikeouts, no run)’.
