Masahiro Tanaka: Game #21

by on Aug.18, 2007 @ 12:35 pm, under NPB

Tanaka started his 21st game of the season against the Softbank Hawks. Unlike his other starts, the offense just couldn't score enough runs to either secure him a victory, or keep him from being involved in the final decision. Actually, the offense couldn't do much of anything as they were more or less shut down (1 run on 5 hits, 2 walks, and 9 strikeouts).

Tanaka's 21st start of the season wasn't exactly horrible (3 runs, 2 earned), but not exactly good either (3 walks, 1 HBP, and 8 hits). He did manage to strikeout 8 of the 36 batters he faced and left the game with 108 pitches thrown. Still, a couple of timely hits and the game could have been much worse.

Final score: Softbank 3 - Rakuten 1
