Nippon Ham Fighters

  • First round draft pick Kohei Arihara became the first Nippon Ham rookie to record a win in his debut since Yuki Saito in 2011. Source: Sponichi 5/15/2015
  • Shohei Otani became the youngest pitcher in Pacific League history to record thirty-five or more consecutive scoreless innings. Source: Nikkan Sports 5/15/2015 ... The thirty-five consecutive scoreless innings was the second longest in franchise history. Yu Darvish set the franchise record with forty-six in 2011.
