Yesterday Kris earned his 7th win while pitching at Mazda stadium! He pitched 8 shut out innings, struck out 5 batters, and only gave up one walk! woo hoo! The carp won 4-0 ( Kris even scored!) The cherry on top was that his parents were there to see him have a great game. Kris and Arai ( He hit a two run home run) were players of the game. While Kris did his interview on the field he pointed out his parents and they made their Japan baseball TV debut. haha. It was a great day and even better, the Carp won the series!
Now for a picture overload…. The sno cone flavors here are so yummy, so I of course had to take a picture. These little boys sat by me the entire game and were too cute. Once Kris pointed us out in the stands we were taking pictures during the rest of the interview. I LOVED these guys, they both had on Johnson jerseys and they insisted I sign them. Haha, I hope one day Kris signs them!
Now for all the social media pictures, thank you again to everyone who posts pictures.
Then Kris and Arai got a surprise shower! 🙂 It was so funny to watch, it was even funnier that Kris thought they missed him and then he got soaked! If you want to watch a video of it you can click here.
Yesterday was a great day and I’m glad his parents were able to have an awesome last day in Hiroshima.
