Hanshin Tigers closer Seung-Hwan Oh, who recorded 277 career saves in Korean professional baseball, reached 300 career saves in Korea and Japan combined. “Today is a special day,” Oh said in one breath, while continuing, “But I didn’t come to Japan to reach 300 saves. This is just a landmark on the road to many more saves,” emphasising that this number is just a checkpoint.
Though he got into a jam by allowing two hits, Oh remained unfazed and managed to close out the game without allowing any runs. Manager Yutaka Wada praised him, saying “His ability to shut down the opponent is pivotal to our success.”
