Sanspo has posted a portion of 1st round draft pick Shintaro Fujinami's post-game interview with the media after Sunday's start against Seibu.
On your outing.
I did not feel great out there and gave up two runs. There were times I was not pitching at my best and I do not think I did a very good job. I flew open a little and fell behind in the count. I gave up unnecessary walks.
You got strikeouts when you really needed them.
Strikeouts are the best kind of out, so I was going after them.
You threw a personal high eighty pitches.
I can throw more. I did not feel very taxed.
You faced fellow Osaka Toin alumnus Hideto Asamura (Seibu).
He got a hit off me on a bad pitch. But that is the difference between high school [and professional players].
What was mentioned when they called you on a balk?
I think I was a bit slow. It was a first since junior high. In high school, you just get warnings.
You topped out at 148km/h.
I am not really concerned about velocity. I am fine with 140km/h, so long as I can get hitters out.
What kind of adjustments did you make in the 5th inning?
I felt I was not using my lower body very well, so I made sure I to focus on staying back on my back leg during my last inning. The quality of my pitches improved [in the 5th].
You gave yourself a seventy percent in your last outing and your outing before that.
Today was very bad. I think it was a sixty or sixty-five percent.
