Yamamoto appeared as a starting pitcher in the game against Rakuten held at the Kyocera Dome in Osaka, Japan on the 16th. He became the losing pitcher after throwing 104 pitches in 7 innings, allowing 9 hits, 3 strikeouts, 2 walks, and 3 runs (2 earned). Orix lost 1-3.
It was his 6th loss of the season, the most losses in a single season. The season record was 14 wins, 6 losses, and an average ERA of 1.32. The number of wins and first place in ERA in the Pacific League remain unchanged.
The first inning started with a three-way tie. He got a hit from leadoff hitter Asamura in the second inning, and walked Abe after one out. With one out and runners on first and second base, the danger of conceding a run was overcome with a foul fly by the third baseman and a fly ball by the left fielder.
He gave up a run in the third inning with a 1-0 lead, ending a streak of 44 consecutive innings since August. With one out, Kobukata hit to right, and with two outs on first base, Shimauchi hit to first and second base. He threw a curveball to Asamura and hit a left-handed hit, allowing the score to be tied 1-1.
Then, Okashima was targeted with a forkball and hit a timely mid-game hit, allowing a 1-2 comeback. The inning ended with a pitcher’s ground ball with 2 outs and runners on first and second base.
He allowed a heavy hit with one out in the fourth inning, but a quick check to first base put the runner out. After two outs, the inning ended with a missed swing and a strikeout.
An additional run was lost due to an error in the 5th inning. Leadoff hitter Kobukada was hit by a heavy hit, and due to a defensive error, the hitter advanced to third base. A sacrifice fly at third base with no outs allowed the third run.
The 6th inning was also a crisis. After one out, Abe hit a double to left, but the left fielder fumbled once and the batter runner advanced to third base. He took a breather with a strikeout with 1 out and 3rd base, and after giving up a walk, he blocked it without allowing a run with a grounder to the shortstop with 2 outs and 1st and 3rd bases.
In the 7th inning, leadoff hitter Kobukada hit a heavy hit and a sacrifice bunt put him in danger with one out and runners on second base. No additional runs were allowed due to infield ground balls and outfield fly balls. He handed the ball over to the bullpen in the 8th inning, trailing 1-3.
After one out in the second inning, Orix’s batting line scored first with a double and an infield grounder following an error by the third baseman. However, he failed to score in the 4th inning with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases, the 6th inning with 1 outs and 2nd bases, and the 8th inning with 2 outs and 1st and 2nd bases on base.
In the game against the Chiba Lotte Marines held at Jojo Marine Stadium in Japan on the 9th, Yamamoto allowed only 1 walk and 1 base hit in 9 innings (102 pitches), struck out 8, and recorded a no-hitter. He became the third player in history to record no hits and no runs for two consecutive years.
He threw a fastball of 156km, the highest at the time, and showed perfect pitching with only 47 pitches until the 5th inning. On this day against Rakuten, where he took the mound after resting for 6 days, he allowed 9 hits, the most since 11 hits against Seibu on April 22.
