Rookie right-hander Yamamoto sees success with the Marlins

MIAMI (AP) — Rookie right-hander Jordan Yamamoto of the Miami Marlins dazzled in his first three pitching starts in Major League Baseball (MLB), but his winning streak ended over the weekend against the Philadelphia Phillies in his fourth start. The Marlins fell behind 1-6 before starting a comeback. The final score was 9-6.

Yamamoto, the first Marlins pitcher to win his first three career starts, saw the streak end when he allowed four runs in four innings.

In his first start on June 12, Yamamoto became the first pitcher since Pittsburgh’s Nick Maddox in 1907 to beat the St. Louis Cardinals twice in a seven-day span when the first game was his debut.

The Marlins won the first game, 9-0, and the second, 6-0, on June 18. In both contests, he pitched seven scoreless innings.

The 23-year-old gave up three hits in seven innings in his MLB debut. Before that game, he had not pitched above the Double-A level. In his second outing, he allowed two hits, struck out seven, and walked two.

In his third start, against the Phillies on June 23, the 6’0", 185-pound Yamamoto pitched two-hit ball over five innings, allowing two runs and four walks on 99 pitches. He struck out seven and kept his ERA at 0.95. The Marlins won 6-4.

Yamamoto was selected by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 12th round of the 2014 first-year player draft out of the Saint Louis School in Honolulu, Hawai‘i.
