Daiya no A Chapter 121
Inashiro advances to the semi-finals!
Chapter 121 / Not like yourself
A perfect play from their ace Narumiya up to Iguchi!!
1 safe hit pitching until the 7th inning
All games of the West Tokyo Tournament that were hold today are over and the best four are set.
Seidou High from A-Block, Sensen Academy from B-Block, // from D-Block the only metropolitan school, Sakurazawa High
and from C-Block last year’s champion, Inashiro Industrial.
Which team will get a ticket for the dream stage!
The game starts in two days, from 10---
Like I thought, our opponent is Sensen in the semi.
It’s a powerhouse with over 80 members and frequently makes it into the best 8.
They were defeated by Ichidai with a one-point difference in this spring.
They had this really huge pitcher.
Over 2m height?
Shouldering the ace number since his first year
and his unfathomable desire to turn pro in the future…
His straight ball that got a down-faced angle from his height
and his curve that’s being said to be set free from a height unprecedented in Japan.
Unprecedented in Japan…?
from his height?
Special pitch: Curve.
About the starting pitcher for the semi-finals in two days..
I’m thinking of going with Tanba…
You’re ready, right!
Yay, he’s back into his position.
A fight between curve pitchers!
He might lose in heights, but he can’t lose in the curve!
He’s winning with the shape of his head.
How does that matter!!
Haha, you’re the best, Tetsu-san!
I leave this inning to you…
Even though he told me that,
he took me down from the mound…
I betrayed the coach’s expectations…
I won’t get another chance---
Kawakami… It might be hard, but prepare like always!
You’ll get on the mound too if there’s a chance.
So be prepared in time!
But.. I was hit today…
I want to let Furuya, who pitched in all game so far, rest.
His fatigue has piled up even without him noticing.
You three will responsible for the game in two days.
The regulars are excused now! // Go to sleep early to get rid of the exhaustion.
Sorry, I wasn’t list---
*Today’s theme // Mound Knowledge // What to do after getting hit // Confirm the inning count // Confirm point difference and out count
It’s only obvious that the ball gets hit in baseball.
(Today’s reflection meeting)
It’s only natural that they take points from the pitcher…
When you’re about to panic on the mound, first look around you.
Call out to the others by yourself and calm your feelings.
There are pitchers, who walk around the mound to calm themselves…
And also those, who speak to the ball to keep their concentration up…
Anyway, let it all out in the bullpen.
(With a bam!)
Are you listening?
(I’m not pitching)
(Kawakami participating out of his own will)
Why did I get another chance?
What are you worried about? (Someone like you!) // Usually you would be all happy?
Well… But I worsened the flow of the team…
Hey, hey… Don’t tell me you’re scared to go on the mound again // just because they hit a home run off you?
I told you it was my leading mistake.
Is that the attitude of someone, who made a mistake~~!!
Miyuki… He won’t get it unless you tell him straight… (That guy…)
Don’t call me idiot!
You learned a new form in only three months after entering the school…
Thanks to Chris-senpai!
But that only made it difficult to see the release point of the ball,
it didn’t suddenly increase it’s speed or force….
So even a missed, hit ball will make it to the outer field. // And with the right timing, it might even get into the stands!
Control, force… and experience! // There’s too much to list.
There’s still place for you to improve as a pitcher…
Ah, you also need to cure your stupidity.
Aren’t there any good points…
what the coach is hopeful of is
The strength of your heart---
taking a break is also a job of a pitcher.
The coach wants to play with all four pitcher until the end this summer…
You guys are already an important part of our line-up.
Let’s go together
(Conquer the Nation)
