I tried to utilize a lot of good memories and play as fast as possible. I had some difficulties in the first inning, but I think it worked out because I got better in the second half.”

“As a starter, I wanted to pitch until the sixth inning. I didn’t want to go long from the beginning, but I tried to get one batter and one inning from the first inning to make sure.
