Projected Starters

RHP Masato Morishita (1-0, 1.72 ERA) vs RHP Shoichi Inoh (1-0, 3.60 ERA)

Game Preview

This matchup between the Carp and the BayStars seem to have a clear favorite on paper, as the BayStars have been one of the best teams in the Central League; at least after the first few weeks, they look like the only team capable of going toe-to-toe with the Yomiuri Giants. Meanwhile, the Carp might have a shot at fighting for the playoffs, but they didn't start the season on a strong note. The pitching matchup will face Masato Morishita against Shoichi Inoh. Morishita has looked good thanks to a 1.72 ERA in his first two starts, but he has also struck out 15 batters while allowing just three runs in 15.2 innings of work. He will be severely tested by the strong BayStars lineup, though. Yokohama will counter with Inoh, who has a 3.60 ERA after allowing two runs in five innings during his lone start of 2020.
