‘It’s been 38 years since I’ve won a title’ Hanshin extends his winning streak to nine games for the third time this year, and his magic number is ‘3’

The Hanshin Tigers of the Japanese professional baseball league have achieved three consecutive wins in a season for the third time in history, raising their chances of winning the league.

Hanshin won nine consecutive games with a 1-0 victory over the Yomiuri Giants at Hanshin Koshien Stadium in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan on the 12th. Starting pitcher Nishi Yuki pitched well with two hits, two walks, six strikeouts and no runs in nine innings, achieving his first shutout of the season.

Japanese media Nikkan Sports said, “Hanshin has won nine consecutive games since the match against Yakult on the 1st. This is the third time Hanshin has won more than nine consecutive games this season, following nine consecutive wins from May 20 to 30, and 10 consecutive wins from August 3 to 13. It is the third time in Japanese professional baseball history that he has won more than nine consecutive games in a season after Yomiuri (13 consecutive wins, 10 consecutive wins, 9 consecutive wins) in 1955 and Yomiuri (3 consecutive wins) in 1990. “Hanshin won eight consecutive games in 1947, but this is the first time in the club’s history that it has won nine consecutive games,” he explained Hanshin’s milestone.

Hanshin’s starting pitchers won all nine consecutive games. Nikkan Sports said, “It is the first time since Softbank from September 30 to October 13, 2011 that a starting pitcher has won more than nine games. It is the first time in 55 years that Hanshin has achieved this record since August 18-31, 1968. “Hanshin started 11 consecutive games in 1937 and 1963. “How far will it continue this time?” he said, expecting Hanshin’s rise.먹튀검증

Hanshin, who won nine consecutive games, recorded 78 wins, four draws, and 44 losses, widening the gap with Hiroshima (68 wins, four draws, and 58 losses), and reducing the league’s winning magic number to three. It is possible to confirm the league title as early as the 14th. “Hanshin, which achieved its third nine consecutive wins of the season, recorded a winning margin of 34, the highest winning margin since Akinobu Okada took office,” said Japanese media Sports Hochi. It is also the record for the previous director, Akihiro Yano. “There is a possibility of confirming the league title at the home game at Koshien Stadium on the 14th, and the A-Class (third place or higher) has been confirmed to advance to the climax series,” he said.

Coach Okada said, “Nishi Yuki did a great job today. The controls are really outstanding. There was a really dangerous ball about two pitches, but other than that, the ball was really low and well loaded. The control was good and I think it’s the best pitching this year. The number of pitches was just right, so I left it to the ninth inning,” he praised Nishi Yuki, who achieved a shutout.

Regarding the possibility of confirming the championship at the home stadium on the 14th, Okada said, “We also have to see the results of the opponent team (Hiroshima). “Anyway, we will do our best tomorrow to reduce the magic number one by one.”

Hanshin has won five Central League titles (1962, 1964, 1985, 2003 and 2005). However, 1985 was the only Japanese series to win. Fans are looking forward to whether Hanshin, who is aiming to win the sixth league title, will be able to win the Japanese Series for the first time in 38 years.
