[7/10/2016] Tomoyuki Sugano sets new career high in strikeouts

Tomoyuki Sugano recorded his fourth complete game victory of the season on July 9 against Yokohama at Tokyo Dome. He is the first Yomiuri pitcher to record at least four complete game victories before the All-Star break since Tetsuya Utsumi racked up five in 2006 and the first right-handed Yomiuri pitcher since Koji Uehara notched four in 2002.

Sugano also set a career high for strikeouts in a game on July 9 with thirteen. He set his previous high of twelve twice: against Seibu on May 18, 2013 and against Hanshin on April 28, 2016.
