    Noticed that from the box score, too, that Ishii had thrown two pitches this time and got the ‘W’. So three pitches, picking up two wins, first ones since ’08 while with Yokohama. Living a charmed life, I’d say. Retire your man, offense scores the next half inning, other guys come in to finish it, you get the win. That’s great!
