Man, Murakami has really not delivered. Too much pressure on a young kid, probably.

There
man leaving the bases loaded two innings in a row is not how you win ballgames. Need Yamamoto to hold them here and then have a couple of 9/1/2 get on for Ohtani.

There
or a strike him out throw him out
Like I said, OUT!

The only real strength this current catcher (Kai, of the Softbank Hawks) brings to the team is his arm. The "Kai Cannon" is a well known danger to baserunners onshore here, guess the scouting report didn't get out.

YOSHIDA!! What a good AB, made the adjustment after missing the change earlier. And pretty incredible power to be able to hit that out with that swing.
