June 17 vs Lotte at ZOZO Marine – Hirasawa notched the first walk-off hit of his career. With the score tied at one and runners on second and third with out out in the bottom of the ninth, Hirasawa recorded a walk-off hit to right off Arquimedes Caminero.
Taiga Hirasawa will miss today’s game against the Orix Buffaloes at QVC Marine because he is not feeling well (fever). He never went to the stadium and instead rested at home. The Chiba Lotte Marines are monitoring his condition. They are hoping he will be ready to play against after a full day’s rest. If he needs more time, they may consider taking him off the active roster.
[UPDATE 9/1 @ 9:58pm]
Hirasawa was taken off the active roster today because he was still not feeling well.0 Comments
Taiga Hirasawa recorded his first Ni-gun home run on April 3 against Rakuten. He led off the fourth inning with a blast to left off Kenny Ray.
