      Tomura didn’t do very well in his previous outing (vs Nippon Ham) either: 2 IP, 13 BF, 42 NP, 7 H, 2 SO, 2 R, 2 ER.

      It’s a far cry from his first start of the season when he tossed 6-shutout innings against Orix.

      Seems like the league is making adjustments but he hasn’t managed to yet.

      But then the defense didn’t exactly help him out today either.
