Shintaro Fujinami (29, Oakland Athletics) pitched a scoreless inning in extra innings to earn his fourth win of the season (7-7).
Fujinami pitched one scoreless inning in relief in the top of the 10th inning of a 6-6 extra-inning victory over the Chicago White Sox at the Oakland Coliseum on Monday (Sept. 29) in Oakland, Calif. With two outs in the bottom of the 10th, Fujinami scored the winning run on an error to give Oakland a 7-6 victory and earn his fourth win.
Entering the game with the bases loaded in extra innings, Fujinami struck out the first batter he faced, Yasmani Grandal, on a wild pitch. Carlos Perez followed with a grounder to the second baseman. He then gave up a walk to Zach Lemillard, but struck out Andrew Benintendi to end the inning.
Fujinami, a former rival of Shohei Ohtani (LA Angels), is having a rough debut season in the MLB.
Signed to a short-term, one-year, $3 million contract last winter, Fujinami went 3-0 with a 3.86 ERA in exhibition games to earn a spot in the starting lineup. However, his ERA was 13.00 in April and 10.50 in May.바카라사이트
