Shin Nihon Sekiyu Eneos advance to finals; Tazawa – 6.2 inning, 3 runs

by on Sep.08, 2008 @ 2:28 pm, under Industrial

Considering Junichi Tazawa's (田澤純一) prior 3 outings, he didn't have a very good game yesterday against Honda. In 6.2 innings he gave up 3 runs on 8 hits (including a 3-run homer), walked 1, hit two batters, and struck out 6. But in the end, Shin Nihon Sekiyu Eneos (新日本石油ENEOS) still won, 5-4, and will be facing Oji Paper (王子製紙) in the finals later today (9/9).

I didn't realize it at the time, but Tazawa has pitched in all 4 of the games during this tournament. Wonder if that means he'll make an a relief appearance against Oji Paper.

Regardless of whether or not he pitches later today, I'm guessing all eyes will be focused on him after the game to see if he makes any announcements regarding what he'll be doing moving forward.

BTW: if there's any interest, I can try to dig up some more stats on Tazawa.
