Yakult Swallows: 11 consecutive ABs with a hit inning

by on Jun.14, 2009 @ 1:32 pm, under NPB

Just as I did it with the Chiba Lotte Marines 15-run inning, I thought it might be kind of interesting to re-create the "11 consecutive ABs with a hit" inning the Swallows had against the Orix Buffaloes yesterday at the Kyocera Dome in the 5th.

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

- 11 hits (2 doubles,1 home run), 2 walks
- 15 batters / 45 pitches

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

    Wow, lots of those hits came early in the count – maybe the new Swallows manager is emphasizing aggressiveness at the plate? Either way, it sure paid off.
