“I wanted to throw all the way to win the team.”

These are the words Yokohama Baystars right-hander Trevor Bauer (32) said after winning his second complete game. Manager Daisuke Miura, a former Yokohama pitcher legend, praised Bauer, saying, “Bauer focused on throwing one pitch at a time without showing signs of fatigue, and left it to the end.”

Bauer started against the Yakult Swallows at Yokohama Stadium on the 6th and recorded 4 hits and 1 run in 9 innings.토토사이트 He led a 3-2 win with 128 pitches. He posted his sixth win of the season by a complete game.
