‘Bad Boy Cy Young Winner’ Traver Bauer (32). I pitched the worst since advancing to Japan. Bauer was released from the Los Angeles Dodgers after being involved in sexual misconduct allegations. After failing to find a team in the U.S., he entered professional baseball in Japan.
Bauer started the home game against Yomiuri on the 9th in Niigata, but he threw 103 pitches in 6 innings, giving up 11 hits (3 home runs), striking out 8 and allowing 7 runs (6 earned), becoming the losing pitcher.
It produced a result that was significantly different from Hotu (7 innings, 1 run) against the Hiroshima Toyo Carp on the 3rd, which was his debut match in Japanese professional baseball. Even the loud voice, “I want to strike out all 27 hitters,” turned into nonsense within a few days
Bauer recorded 7 hits,토토사이트 1 walk, 9 strikeouts and 1 run while taking charge of 7 innings with 98 pitches against the Hiroshima Carps on the 3rd. His only run came on a home run. He hit a solo home run off Davidson in the second inning.
In the second pitch, he started shaking from the second inning. He gave up a tying solo home run to leadoff hitter Okamoto in the second inning for a 1–0 lead. In the second out and second base that continued, Kadowaki hit a timely 1 RBI.
In the 3rd inning, he committed a three-way offense including two strikeouts. However, in the 4th inning, it was scored again. He hit a double by leadoff hitter Oshima, then allowed a timely hit again to Kadowaki from first out and third base.
He again had a three-way offense in the fifth inning, but was hit again in the sixth inning. It was the root cause of Okamoto’s mistake. He hit the next batter, Oshiro, with a two-run home run in the rain.
He then got an infield hit from Brinson, and after a run, Kadowaki got a 2-run home run with a wedge superiority.
Bauer, who threw 103 pitches through the 6th, went down the mound in the 7th. In the 7th inning, Tatsuya Ishikawa pitched in relief. Gyangi was Yomiuri’s 9-2 complete victory.
“I think he needs to learn more because he doesn’t know Japanese hitters yet,” Bauer said after the game. Most of his 11 hits today were breaking balls. A countermeasure for this also seems necessary. Pay homage to Japanese baseball. I will use today’s failure as an experience and try to make better results in the next match.”
In fact, Bauer showed a sense of responsibility, blocking 103 rolls and 6 innings despite poor conditions and results.
In Japan, Bauer is showing a willingness to learn and take care of even one thing rather than the image of a bad boy. However, if his skills are lacking, the heat now focused on Bauer will become an arrow of criticism and will be intensively saturated.
I am very much looking forward to the results of Bauer’s next appearance.
