by on May.15, 2010 @ 1:57 pm, under NPB

...Yu Darvish has not given up any runs over his last 20 consecutive innings.  That's 5 innings away from his career high of 25 consecutive scoreless innings (set in 2007) and 15 innings away from the franchise record set by Yasuo Yonekawa in 1954 (Toei Flyers).

Darvish told reporters that winning was more important that extending the streak.

...The Fighters announced the start of a giveaway for player autographs (on baseballs and on autograph boards) and tickets to games.  To be eligible, fans will need to collect stamps that will be available at each of the home games.  Fans that collect all 12 stamps will be eligible to win any of the three items.
