He is still an unfamiliar monster pitcher.
Chiba Lotte Marines’ Loki Sasaki (22) was kicked먹튀검증 after allowing 3 runs in 3 innings. On the 17th, he started the away game against the Seibu Lions at the Seibu Dome in Tokorozawa, Saitama Prefecture, and threw 70 pitches and crossed the mound. It was his second game since returning from his left side injury.
The game was greatly shaken after two outs in the bottom of the first inning. The 1st and 2nd hitters did well. He struck out No. 1 Shunichiro Kishi and No. 2 Sosuke Genda with a ground ball to shortstop and a missed swing.
He sent out No. 3 Ryosei Sato on 4 pitches and got the first hit from No. 4 Takumi Kuriyama. Then an unexpected situation occurred.
With 2 outs and runners on 1st and 3rd base, No. 6 Aito and No. 7 Kento Watanabe were sent out one after another. He gave up the first point with a push throw. With the bases loaded and 2 outs, No. 8 Shuta Donosaki hit a timely double with 2 RBIs.
He threw 38 pitches in the first inning alone.
He gave up a hit with one out in the second and third innings, but finished without giving up any additional runs. 3 innings, 4 hits, 3 strikeouts, 1 walk, 2 walks, 3 runs allowed.
Perhaps due to the injury, his speed was lower than before. His top speed was up to 160km, but he only hit it once. Chiba Lotte lost 2-3.
Sasaki started against the Orix Buffaloes on the 10th and allowed 1 run in 3 innings. Following the Sei match, he returned from injury and won two games in a row.
In an interview with Japanese media, Saki said, “I lacked skills.”
