Orix Buffaloes: May 3, 2010

by on May.03, 2010 @ 1:55 pm, under NPB

...The Buffaloes may be going through one of their toughest stretches of the season so far (save for perhaps a 5-game losing streak in early April):

4/30 (Fri) they collected 11 hits and scored only once.

5/2 (Sun) they managed only 2 runs despite banging out 12 hits.

They lost three consecutive 1-run contests against the Rakuten Eagles.

Over the last 10 games, the offense has been shutout once, held to 1 run four times, held to 2 runs once, held to 3 runs once, held to four runs once, and scored 6 or more runs twice.

The teams' offensive struggles finally culminated in Akinobu Okada denying the press an interview after the game.
