HIROSHIMA, Japan - Madison's Bryan Bullington tossed a four-hit shutout through seven inning and the Carp bullpen closed a 1-0 Hiroshima win over the Tokyo Yakult Swallows at Mazda Stadium on Thursday.
Bullington, making his second start of the season and first at home, allowed three leadoff singles but no runs over the seven innings. The win evened Bullington's record at 1-1 and earned Hiroshima its first win of the season.
Bullington, the losing pitcher in the Carp's season-opener, gave up four singles and walked one batter while striking out six.
"It's good to get it out of the way," said Bullington, a 1999 Madison graduate and former No. 1 overall pick in Major League Baseball's 2002 amateur draft. "(I was) just trying to execute pitches. I had a couple of jams early in the game I was able to get out of. I got into a little bit of a rhythm my last three or four innings. I was just trying to keep putting zeroes up there, and our guys were able to get a run across."
The Carp entered the game having scored just 11 runs in five losses to start the season - the lowest total in Nippon Professional Baseball.
