Eri Yoshida made her 5th appearance on Friday night in the 8th inning against the Kishu Rangers. She tossed a scoreless inning and gave up 1 hit. The Rangers won the game, 8-1.
After the game, Yoshida said she was happy to pitch and that she was grateful for the chance.
The Kobe 9 Cruise must be feeling relieved that Yoshida decided to return. She has a pretty large following and losing her really would have hurt the club.
