Roki Sasaki Pitched Perfect Game in NPB on Sunday


Recommended Posts


20 years old.

19 strikeouts.

13 strikeouts IN A ROW at one point.

His catcher is a teenager.

His fastball AVERAGED 99.5 MPH.


If he did this in MLB, he'd have the greatest pitched game in history per Bill James' "Game Score" metric (currently belongs to Kerry Wood in his 20 K game).


All of this is just nuts.

but not 20k's? loser....

The average age of the pitcher and catcher here is 19. If he had struck out just 10 I'd be impressed. Lol.

Both the 19 and 13 figures listed in the OP are NPB records.
