Ground Bowler

+ posted by Sohma Riku as translation on Sep 13, 2013 14:18 | Go to Smoky B.B.

-> RTS Page for Smoky B.B. 11

Kitazato: You know what will happen if you dare to throw a crappy pitch, right…
Enjiro: Oh, scary. So scary…
Text: Because they are in a pinch, the ace takes the mound!!

XXX: Change the flow of the game, Haimura!!

Title: Smokey B.B. // Author: Komiyama Kenta // Manga: Kawada Yuuya // Chapter 11 Ground Bowler

XXX: It’s up to you… to light the signal fire of our counterattack!

XXX: (Hm.)

Hayata: However, even if you overtrump those 3 people, it’s impossible to change the flow. // What will you do, Enjiro!!

XXX: It seems that in the first round that strong –armed pitcher was awarded a shutout. // Well, that’s one powerful first year!? // But it won’t be a problem, I’ve seen his pitch many times… A first year with such a smug pitching style…

[T/N: Shutout = when a single pitcher pitches a complete game and doesn’t allow the opposing team to score a run.]

XXX: won’t be able to crush Hotei!!

XXX: What!?
Referee: Strike!!

XXX: Wow, he’s swinging his arm like a demon. // (Your shout is too soft, referee.) // Roger, Clemens. That’s an excellent smoky pitch.

XXX: But, that power pitch he showed in the first match. // As he is unable to completely focus on the batter with one runner in the field

XXX: he suddenly unable to keep his cool!!

Referee: Ball!

XXX: You’re in a hurry, first year!!

XXX: He’s throwing these in panic!! // He’s carefully keeping his pitches low in the strike zone, but // the interval between them is short.

XXX: This kind of straight pitch.

XXX: You won’t be able to get a strikeout… from Hotei’s batters!!

Enjiro: He he, this has gotten interesting…

Ikki: Somehow En no ji is not like his usual self today…

Ikki: But from the batter point of view this tempo is pretty high… // But for the fielding…

Ikki: it’s easier to defend.

Enjiro: Oops! Too bad, over there

Enjiro: is Ikki-kun.

Ikki: And // that’s one // out!!

Referee: Safe.

XXX: That was close!! // That was some amazing double play.
XXX: Tamazawa, that shot was too strong!

XXX: Even we cannot hold ourselves against Honda’s defense.
XXX: yeah…

Ikki: What do you think, En no ji!!? It’s great, right!?
Enjiro: Yeah, nice play…
Ikki: No, I was talking about my hair!!

Ikki: I changed to… a different shampoo!!
Enjiro: How about you change your brain as well!?

XXX: That second rate private school got carried away.

XXX: Second rate, huh…


XXX: That first year is really good. // His catching is also simply amazing!!

Hayata: Alright.

XXX: A nice rhythm. // And the one who created this rhythm is that man!! // Haimura Enjiro.

XXX: There he is, Hotei’s prince.
Sakamaki: (Shut up!) // Alright,… all I need is baseball!!

XXX: In this world there are two things that I absolutely hate. // First, I hate lionized first year super rookies. // And second…

Satou: I hate pollen!! // Both make Spring a depressing season!!

Box: Satou Yuuto (3rd year) Pitcher
Enjiro: Thanks for those refreshing tones. // Can I call you the pocket tissue prince!?

Hayata: After this show of defense, he will aim to connect to the flow with their next attack.
Satou: ( Damn. // Achoo!!)

Satou: There’s also that reason behind this ground bowler pitching style.

Satou: But I’ll teach you one thing, first year!!

Satou: That’s superficial pitching…

Satou: won’t work against me!!

Sakamaki: Damn it!! Even though baseball is all I have!!
Referee: Foul.

Enjiro: Aah, that was close, mister Sakamaki.

Enjiro: If that had been a cheese burger, you would’ve caught it, right!?
Sakamaki: I would’ve caught it in my mouth!

Satou: Tch. // (Achoo!!)
Hayata: That Enjiro… he’s really weird.

Hayata: Oh!

Hayata: It look like he’s actually enjoying // this ground bowler style of pitching. // Why would a show-off like him…

Sakamaki: From today on, you’re also one of Benten!!
Hayata: Aah…

Hayata: I see…

Hayata: After all, baseball…

Hayata: is most enjoyable // if played with 9 people.

Hayata: Go!!

Hayata: Enjiro!

XXX: Don’t…

XXX: underestimate Hotei!

Tora: Ho!

Tora: OK, Haimura. It was inside the fierce tiger’s range of fielding!!
Kitazato: Inside what range of fielding!?

Satou: Damn, because he pitched it down… I couldn’t raise the angle? // I warn you! Don’t get carried away, first year!!

Satou: All three of us seemed to have a perfect hit, if you make one mistake, your defense will…
Enjiro: Yeah. Thanks for the advice, Pocketis prince.

Text: Smokey B.B. chapter 11 / End

Enjiro: But // that’s why we’ll get into the swing from the next inning on. // Prepare yourself, Hotei!!

Satou: So… that’s his aim!

XXX: Benten, huh? // Maybe we’d better crush them right here and now.
