Daiya no A Chapter 99
Bash the second ball from above!!
Nice batting, Akki!!
Right besides the line.
Run, Raichi, Run!!
They're... only going after Furuya's high pitches--
With the set position, his straight pitch loses his effectiveness.
Our superior batting order got this pitch...
That's why I put Raichi as first.
The runner from second-base comes home!!
Yakushi High School scores the first point---!!
Chapter 99: Reliable Seniors
Follow my lead, Masshiima!!
Stop calling me that!! (You got bad pronouncing)
Hit it, hit it away!!
You can't win in baseball without scoring!! [orly?]
F- Furuya's straight got hit two times!?
And proper one, not losing to the pitch's power...
W- We should consider their batting order on the same level as Oosaka Kiriyuu's, who devastated Furuya before...
It's different from back then, where he was tired from the training camp...
Furuya's pitches aren't bad at all...
Don't ignore me. (Hey)
They got us.
Who had thought they would be aiming for the high straights.
Well... His low and high ones are pretty obvious, so it's not really an aim...
But with this
we have no choice but to accept it.
This team is strong!!
Gar, I can't watch this anymore. // Please let me go!!
You stay put!
They aren't the type of guys to stay quiet about this.
Furuya won't leave it at that either...
but specially that Miyuki won't.
We'll build our strategy around the split-finger now.
By all means, the straight is your strongest weapon.
Don't snap at every hit they get off you.
I didn't snap!!
You clearly are!!
When you're about to snap, just take a look behind you.
You got some reliable seniors behind your back!
For now, don't worry about the runner.
Just focus on the batter!!
Where's your answer.
Don't snap on us. (Hyahaha)
Don't tense up, Furuya~~!!
We're ready anytime!!
Not just against Akikawa, but here against they allowed them to take the lead.
Seems Furuya-kun isn't the best opening pitcher.
Both teams might have taken the lead on them, but this is different from Akikawa's intent to make Furuya self-destruct by waiting for good pitches....
And I'm sure, Yakushi will stir things up
with their running, since they don't bunt...
If they can't hold them down here
they'll suffer a great point loss like Ichidai...
Uwaaa, another hit~~
A straight on the first pitch, huh...
Guess they noticed our aim?
That catcher got impressive conviction----
He got power...
And his swing is sharp...
He wasn't chosen as a clean-up hitter against Ichidai for nothing.
Let's build up the count with the split-finger,
Making their move here?
Not just a breaking ball,
but a specially low one that it'll bump down once...
I won't make it in time if I catch it normally---
H- Hey, just now...
It bumped down once...
He wouldn't have made it, if he caught it right up front...
He knew that and thus created a position for himself by catching it single handed, so he could immediately throw the ball....
Now it's one out.
Even at the front, you have one sitting, Furuya...
A reliable senior!
Nice play, Miyuki!!
Wh-What a catch!
It's good we got an out with it, // but if he had screwed up, it would have been a passed ball!!
Hahaha. Don't make such a fuss.
You're really such a...
---Geez, what an aggressive play...
But this play had a big effect.
Yeah...Now they won't make their move so easily again.
Ohhh, a pay-back fence hit!!
Third-base runner back home!!
Seidou High School ties the score right away--!!
When it comes down to scoring, we won't lose!!
Say your prayers, bastards!!
To think they stopped us at one point in the first inning...
Seems you'll get your turn early in this game, Sanada!!
