The Samurai Japan collegiate team played a practice game against Niigata Iryo Fukushi University at HARD OFF ECO Stadium Niigata earlier today. Haruhiro Hamaguchi started the game and tossed four shutout innings. He faced thirteen hitters, did not allow a hit or a walk, and struck out ten. Shunpei Yoshikawa (two innings, six hitters), Masashi Ito (one inning), Hiromasa Saito (one inning), and Koya Mizuno (one inning) also pitched in the game. The five pitchers combined for a no-hitter and recorded a total twenty strikeouts against Niigata Iryo.
The offense scored a run in the seventh (a single and a stolen base by Chihiro Onishi, and an RBI single to left by Takuya Sato), a run in the eighth (with the help of an error), and two in the ninth (timely hits from Yusuke Oyama and Naoki Yoshikawa).
Samurai Japan beat Niigata Iryo 4-0.
