Hiroshima Carp right-hander Hiroki Kuroda gave a phenomenal performance in what could be the final outing of his storied professional career in Tuesday’s Game 3 of the Japan Series against the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters at Sapporo Dome.

The 41-year-old went 5⅔ innings, allowing four hits and one run in 85 pitches in Hiroshima’s 4-3 loss to the Fighters, with fans clad in red replica Carp jerseys and caps flying miles from their Hiroshima homes to support him.
