Orix Buffaloes Yamashita Peita First Win Failed

160km fire bowler Yamashita Peita failed to win for the first time despite five innings of involuntary pitching

The Orix Buffaloes’ young gun, Yamashita, failed to secure a victory in his second appearance of the season.
On the 11th, he pitched as a starting pitcher in a home game against the Rakuten Eagles in the 2024 NPB regular season at Kyocera Dome in Osaka, Japan.

He pitched well with seven hits, two walks, six strikeouts and one run (non-earning) in five innings, but Yamashita failed to record a win or loss as Orix won 2-1 in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Yamashita joined the Orix with the No. 1 rookie draft pick in 2020.

In 2023, he made his debut in the first division as a starting pitcher for the opening game, recording an overwhelming performance, and was honored with the Pacific League Rookie of the Year.
He drew attention from the first year of his debut with a fastball with a maximum speed of 160km/h.
After Yamamoto, who left for the Major League through a contract with the Dodgers, he is drawing attention as the next-generation ace.

Yamashita Beats the Seibu Lions

Yamashita, who made his first appearance of the season against the Seibu Lions on April 3, 2024, became a losing pitcher with two runs in five innings in front of major league scouts.
He had two hits, but he was shaken by recording eight four-balls (7 balls, 1 ball that fits his body) and one wild pitch.

Yamashita, who is recovering his self-esteem, got off to a good start with three outs in the first inning against the Rakuten lineup.
In the second inning, he faced a bases-loaded crisis by allowing three consecutive hits after one out, but he cleared the inning without losing a point with a swing strikeout and a foul fly ball.

In the third inning, the leadoff hitter came due to bad luck, and shortstop Kurebayashi Kotaro made a throwing error on Yuya’s infield hit, facing a crisis of second base with no outs.
With Rakuten’s sacrifice bunt operation making it one out and third base, Yamashita allowed a timely double after a full count match with Asamura Hideto.

After giving up the first run, Yamashita, who was driven to first and second bases with a walk, finished the third inning without additional runs due to strikeouts and fly balls to shortstop after his coach’s visit to the mound.
After getting a hit by Hiroto Kobukata after two outs in the fourth inning, Yamashita even allowed a steal, facing a crisis of scoring, but he struck out Ogo with a swing and miss after a seven-pitch game.

Yamashita, who allowed a double with a big hit that hit the fence by leadoff batter Itki Murabayashi in the fifth inning, took a breather when he handled Asamura, the main character of the first RBI, with a fly ball to right field.
In the ensuing crisis with one out and second base, Yamashita struck out Abe Toshiki, who had a tenacious game by making five foul balls, with a swing and miss in seven pitches.

walk to Takero Yamashita Okajima

Yamashita, who filled the 100th ball, gave up a walk to Okajima Takero and was forced to sit on the first and second bases with two outs.
However, he handled Daichi Suzuki with a fly ball to left field and finished pitching with one run (non-earned) in five innings.

His best speed on the day was 159 km/h, 1 km/h short of his personal best (160 km/h).
Yamashita, who had 107 pitches, came down the mound at 0-1 loss, but the Orix batters tied the score in the bottom of the sixth inning, erasing the losing pitcher requirement.

Orix made a dramatic walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth inning with one out and one on first base in the bottom of the ninth inning to make a 2-1 come-from-behind victory.
After the game, Yamashita announced that he tried to win by throwing it into the strike zone through the 토토사이트 club, but failed to throw it rhythmically as the number of pitches increased.

I will try to throw a longer inning as a starter,” he said.
He added, “There were scenes where I could push with my strength, and I think it was good that I was able to survive with the minimum number of runs somehow.”
