[4/27/2016] Yasunori Kikuchi tosses a shutout inning in relief

Yasunori Kikuchi got off to a slow start because of lingering right shoulder pain (it first started acting up last year in August). He pitched in his first game this season at Ni-gun against Seibu on April 27. He entered the game in the eighth inning and tossed a shutout inning in relief. He gave up one hit, struck out two, and topped out at 143km/h.
