[10/1/2013] Rakuten Eagles: Masahiro Tanaka remains undefeated this season

by on Oct.02, 2013 @ 1:59 am, under NPB

Masahiro Tanaka beat the Nippon Ham Fighters 11-2 on Tuesday and improved to 23-0 in twenty-seven games (twenty-six starts) this season.  He is also 26-0 in thirty-four games (thirty-three starts) since his last loss on August 10, 2012 vs the Seibu Lions and 13-0 over his last fourteen starts against the Nippon Ham Fighters.

Tanaka is the first pitcher to win twenty-three games in one season since Keishi Suzuki (25-10) and Osamu Higashio (23-14) in 1978. He now has ninety-eight victories in 174 games over his career. He will most likely get one more start before the end of the regular season.
