Chiba Lotte Marines: 15-run inning

by on Jun.11, 2009 @ 1:45 pm, under NPB

I thought it might be interesting to sort of re-create the 6th inning of Thursday night's game against the Hiroshima Carp (at Chiba Marine Stadium) in which the Chiba Lotte Marines scored 15 runs.

Here's some other information that might be of interest:

- 12 hits (1 double), 3 walks, 2 HBP, 1 SF
- 10 consecutive ABs with a hit (not including PAs)
- 20 batters / 76 pitches
- According to Nikkan Sports, the inning lasted about 48 minutes

Note:
The information in the brackets is the pitch sequence along with the count.

Key:
S-L = Strike Looking, S-S = Strike Looking, B = Ball, F = Foul, BB = Walk H = Hit, FO = Fly out, HBP = Hit by Pitch, Err = Error, SF = Sac Fly

    Funny that Ohmatsu was the only guy to bat three times in the inning and he was responsible for two outs.

    (Also it’s Koichi Hori, not Yuichi…)

    Thanks for the heads up on Koichi Hori. I think I was looking at the Katakana spelling at the time and accidentally read the "ko" as "yu."

    I think I’ve been spending waaay too much time sitting in front of a computer lately trying to catch up on work.
