Yokohama Bay Stars

  • Daisuke Miura became the nine pitcher over forty in NPB history to go on a four-or-more-game winning streak, first since Masahiro Yamamoto (five-game winning streak) and Masao Kida (four-game winning streak) in 2010.  Miura and Kimiyasu Kudo (2007) are the only two pitchers in franchise history to accomplish the feat.
