Sakamaki: Batter out!
Sakamaki: Batter out!
Sakamaki: Strike, batter out!!
Kaburaya: 6 strike outs... in a row.
Kaburaya: That damn cheater. // Kitazato-san... at this rate!
Kitazato: Calm down...
Text [lower right]: An overwhelming start!!(2)
Kitazato: Even this guy... // has a weakness.
Text: Kitazato remains calm...!!
Title: Smokey B.B. // Chapter 6 Someday... // Author: Komiyama Kenta // Manga: Kawada Yuuya
Kaburaya: What!? (a weakness!?)
Kitazato: The ones who can attack it are Sakamaki, I, // Ikki and Toratani. // Only the four of us.(3)
Sakamaki: Time. // I'm sorry, someone change with me!!
Sakamaki: Next... I'll give a try.
Hayata: It's finally starting!! The "7th" batter. // In 9out you save the best batters for last.
Enjiro: It's starting // the clear up!!
Kitazato: Sakamaki... come here for a sec!!
KItazato: You'll go down... Haimura Enjiro!! (4)
Sakamaki: Bring it on, Haimura! // It's be bad if you didn't feel a little fear, because that's also a part of the assessment, right!?
Sakamaki: I, Sakamaki Tsutome a.k.a. Benten's buzzing ball, will be your opponent now.
Enjiro: Is that a positive nickname!?
Enjiro: Or is it a negative nickname!?(5)
Hayata: It's a positive nickname. // Seriously.
Hayata: He hit Enjiro's pitch at the first try!!
XXX: Hey, Haimura. This isn't a regular game! We have to re-use each ball, so go get it!! (Hey!)
Enjiro: Tsk. What a poor school.
Enjiro: Hm, damn. Today my pitch... is really no good, huh!?
Ikki: No, it' s really good!!(6)
Ikki: But, you... // will lose at this rate!!
Enjiro: Glove oil!?
Enjiro: I think you're doing the right thing. // My mother always told me to take good care of my tools.
Ikki: This is hair wax!! // This hairstyle is awesome, right!?
Box: Benten Regular (2nd year) / Short stop / Bonda Ikki
Enjiro: Yeah... your hairstyle is great. // Tell me the name of your hairdresser some other time.
Kaburaya: Hey... isn't that Ikki!? // Did he come along!?
Kitazato: Never mind him!!
Enjiro: You... are a regular, right? Shouldn't you sit on the bench of Benten!?
Ikki: I don't like Kitazato's way of handling things, it's like bullying. // So I passed. // By the way.
Ikki: That doesn't mean I like you. // Haimura.(8)
Ikki: You're overoptimistic. // Thinking you can defeat Kitazato and Sakamaki without any preparations, // and expecting you can force your way into Benten by winning a game of 9out.
Ikki: I like baseball freaks, but // I hate shitheads. // I don't like guys who join a high school baseball team, because they are being paid a lot of money.
Ikki: Tell me... Why do you play baseball!?
Ikki: You... Don't you like playing baseball!?
Ikki: Ignoring me!? // Answer me!!
Enjiro: It's complicated...(9)
Sakamaki: Damn... being the chief umpire, I saw the direction of his pitch, // but I'm still late with my swing...?
Kitazato: Yes, he has a weakness. // One I created in advance.
Kitazato: That battery // can only throw the ball at a one-sided course.(10)
XXX: A one-sided course!?
Kitazato: Listen!? If you are the defender, it's fundamental to avoid any risks. // Because these guys are unprepared, they have two weaknesses!! // Because of the unmanned outfield, they are prone to RH...... and[T/N: RH = Running Homerun]
Kitazato: having a ball being hit to the left side!!
Kitazato: Assuming the ball rolls to the right side. Even if they sprint towards the runner if it's a weak grounder, they'll make it in time, right? // But if it goes to the left side, there's no chance they'll be in time. The moment we hit the ball, it's guaranteed we'll get on base.
Kitazato: So, if you want to make it hard to hit the ball to the left side, you have to throw it to the inside*.
*In the case of a right-handed batter
Kitazato: With your talent it's possible. // You have to aim for the in-course!!
Kitazato: If you can hit it to the left side // by using all your power...(11)
Kitazato: It'll be game-set!!
Kitazato: Tsk. // Another foul...?
Hayata: Enjiro!! // Damn, even though the pitch was a little to the outside of the plate...
Hayata: They noticed the lack of variation in his pitches!! // Catch it!
Enjiro: Leave it to me, Hayata!!(12)
Ikki: Hey, hey, a right-handed pitcher shouldn't charge with his right shoulder. // Isn't the shoulder like the life of a pitcher!?
Ikki: You... didn't answer my questions yet. // Tell me... Why do you play baseball!? // You... Don't you like playing baseball!?(13)
Ikki: Why do you play!?
Enjiro: You're persistent... // I had... // no other choice but to come to Benten if I wanted to continue playing baseball.
Enjiro: My reason to play baseball... // was probably the same as yours. // I'm sure it was...
Enjiro: But a lot has changed since then. // Simply because I'm paid money now.
Enjiro: I can no longer say with pride that I love playing baseball......(14)
Enjiro: But that's fine, // because someday I'll be able to say it again!!(15)
Hayata: What now, Enjiro?
Enjiro: It doesn't matter. // If that's what they want to do.
Enjiro: I'll take them down with an inside pitch!!(16)
XXX: A fat pitch!!
Hayata: To the left... moreover this power...
Hayata: It'll go into the outfield...
Kitazato: One point!!(17)
Kitazato: You lost! // Fa- re- well...
Kitazato: Haimura Enjiro!!
Enjiro: Did you...
Ikki: I'm sorry, Kitazato-san...
Ikki: I wanted to enjoy this a bit longer. // This guy // isn't only a shithead, but also a baseball freak!
Enjiro: You're really good!!
