Japanese baseball team pitcher Darvish Yu (37, San Diego Padres) was hit with a home run by a Geopo junior during live pitching (pitching training with the batter standing up).
According to Japanese media such as Nikkan Sports and The Digest, Darvish threw a total of 24 balls against 5 batters in the national team training held in Miyazaki, Japan on the 21st.
Darvish drew a miss from Murakami Munetaka (23, Yakult Swallows), who entered the first at-bat, and then piled up strikes and balls one by one.
However, Murakami kicked up Darvish’s fastball on the 4th pitch, and the ball crossed the fence in the middle and drew an arch.
Afterwards, Murakami also recorded a left-handed hit with an infield grounder in his second at-bat.
After training, Darvish said, “I tried to throw a two-seam fastball toward myself, but the ball floated above the middle,” but “I was surprised to see that he hit it with one shot.”
In addition, against Takumi Oshiro (Yomiuri), Kensuke Kondo (Softbank), Kazuma Okamoto (Yomiuri), and Shugo Maki (Yokohama), only Kondo allowed hits. 온라인카지노
Darvish entered Japan on the 15th and has been digesting the first training of the national team.
He is considered as a promising pitcher to start in the WBC Group B round 1 match against Korea, which will be held on the 10th of next month at 7:00 pm in Tokyo Dome, Japan.
Since entering the major leagues in 2012, Darvish has started 242 games over 11 years, posting a 95-75 record with a 3.50 ERA.
