Eri Yoshida of the Chico Outlaws made her second Golden Baseball League start on Saturday, June 12, against the Yuma Scorpions, who lead the South division.
Yoshida pitched four innings, throwing 79 pitches, allowing four hits, two walks, and two runs (one was unearned). She also got her first strikeout of the season, fanning Timothy Rodriguez, the GBL's RBI leader, on three pitches (ccs) in the third inning. Chico won the game 8-4.
The start of the game was delayed to allow many of the 4,311 fans to get into the park. Chico has drawn an average of 2,217 in its 10 non-Yoshida home games.
