Tigers Game
Yesterday was a difficult game for me. We lost 5-4. We played well last night but I could not save the game. My condition was good but had problems throwing strikes. The onepitch I threw to Yano around his head was a mistake. I have never thrown at the head of any player in my career. With runners on first and third base with two outs Akahoshi was the batter. It was 2 strikes and 0 balls and he beat out an infield hit to tie the game. With bases loaded and 2 out Arai was the batter. It was 3 balls and 2 srikes I threw a fastball on the outside corner that was a clear strike and the umpire called it a ball. That scored the go ahead run and the Tigers won. I was very upset with the umpire and I started screaming at him. The umpire threw me out of the game. I have watched that pitch over and over again and I still think it was a strike. That was the first time in my 18 year career that I have ever challenged an umpire. I do not regreat doing it lst night because I believe it was a strike. Tomorrow we play the Carp and I will be ready for the game. I have put last night game behind me.
