Tohoku Rakuten’s Takahiro Norimoto renewed his own record by striking out 10 or more batters in eight straight games in the Eagles’ 8-2 victory over the Yokohama BayStars in interleague play on Thursday.

Norimoto (8-1) went the distance, giving up two runs on seven hits and a walk while fanning 12 of the 35 batters he faced in his 117-pitch outing at Kobo Park Miyagi. He chalked up his 10th strikeout by fanning Yokohama cleanup hitter Yoshitomo Tsutsugo in the eighth inning.
