Yokohama DeNA Baystars Trevor Bauer achieved double-digit wins in his first season in the Japanese professional baseball league. However, rather than the joy of winning 10 wins, he comforted the opposing team’s pitcher and even showed the pitcher-like aspect of winning the ‘Cy Young Award’ and rising to the ‘top’.

Bauer started on the 25th (hereinafter Korean time) 온라인카지노 in the 2023 Nippon Professional Baseball Chunichi Dragons away match held at Vantelin Dome in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan, and pitched 126 pitches in 8 innings, 7 hits, 3 walks, 7 strikeouts and 2 runs (2 earned). ) and got his 10th win of the season.

Bauer struggled against the Hanshin Tigers on the 20th, throwing a whopping 120 pitches in 8 innings, recording a quality start + (less than 3 earned runs in 7 innings) with 9 hits, 1 walk, 6 strikeouts and 2 runs (2 earned runs). Despite his struggles, however, Bauer was unable to secure his victory as the batting line did not respond. That regret was properly soothed that day.

Bauer, who was supported by 3 points from the start of the game and climbed the mound, got off a clean start by catching all 3 out counts with floating balls in the bottom of the 1st inning. He passed his first crisis well. After catching lead hitter Takuya Kinoshita with a ground ball to third baseman in the second inning, Bauer was suddenly shaken and walked three batters in a row, bringing the bases loaded crisis to himself. However, he escaped the crisis by striking out Takahiro Matsuba and Yuki Okabayashi in succession.

The first loss was in the third inning. Bauer gave up hits to Seiya Hosokawa and Kinoshita, and was attacked by Orlando Calixte with a 152km fastball on the second pitch in a crisis on first and second base, allowing runners to score in two weeks. However, Bauer made the first three-way inning against Chunichi’s center batting line in the 5th inning, escaping the crisis with one out and second base in the 4th inning after blocking an additional run by turning the follow-up hitter into a ground ball to the first baseman.

Bauer, who was cruising after the first run, gave up one more run in the 6th inning with two consecutive doubles in a situation where there was no runner, but with strong support from the other line, it did not significantly affect the victory. Bauer got on the mound in the 7th inning as well, striking out two and recording the second triple-trial of the day, and in the 125th in the 8th inning, he threw a 155km fastball, and after blocking the Chunichi lineup, he got his 10th win of the season.

After the game, Bauer had time to explain (?). Bauer started the game wearing light blue gloves, but as he received a warning from the referee in the 3rd inning, he changed his gloves to pink and came out wearing them. According to Japan’s ‘Chunichi Sports’, Bauer laughed and said, “The referee joked, ‘Isn’t it so cool? Can I change it because other players envy me?’. Maybe he pointed out that because the glove straps looked shiny.”

And before enjoying the joy of 10 victories, Bauer showed the dignity of comforting the opposing pitcher. This is why Ren Chunichi Kondo, who climbed the mound in the top of the 9th inning, recorded 8 hits, 5 runs and 10 runs (8 earned) while digesting 1 inning. Bauer sent a message of support, saying, “I have one thing to say,” and “Any good pitcher has days like this.

Bauer made his name in history as the second foreign pitcher to win 10 wins in Yokohama DeNA history by winning 10 wins in the first season of his debut in Nippon Professional Baseball that day, and he scored 128 strikeouts in the season with 7 strikeouts. I experienced the joy of breaking the strikeout record by a foreign pitcher for the first time in 20 years (previous 123 strikeouts).
