Yakult Swallows: Kentaro Kyuko sets new CL rookie record for appearances without a run

by on Sep.10, 2011 @ 11:33 pm, under NPB

Kentaro Kyuko extended his scoreless appearances streak to 22 (13.2 IP, 7 H, 12 SO) in tonight's game against the Hanshin Tigers and broke Hitoki Iwase's 1999 CL rookie record for consecutive appearances without allowing a run.

FYI: The franchise record (non-rookie) of 25 games was set by Ryota Igarashi in 2009.  The CL record for a non-rookie, 38 consecutive games, was set by Kyuji Fujikawa in 2006.
