SENDAI, Japan - Madison's Bryan Bullington stopped the Rakuten Golden Eagles on a five-hitter Sunday to post his third straight win for the Hiroshima Carp 4-1 at Kobo Stadium.
Bullington, now 7-4 with a 2.93 ERA, struck out four and walked one in the 89-pitch outing, his 11th start of the Nippon Professional Baseball season.
The 1999 Madison graduate and Indiana Mr. Baseball, worked seven compete innings before 23,065. He got into only one jam in the game - the second inning when he allowed a leadoff single, sacrifice, RBI double, single and walk before getting an inning-ending double play to end the Eagle threat.
Tied 1-1 after the second, the Carp scored a run in the fifth and two in the sixth to secure their Central League-leading 31st win in 52 games. Hiroshima is 1.5 games ahead of second place Yomiuri and 3 games ahead of Hanshin.
Bullington, who has now thrown 70.2 innings in 2014, is currently tied for the Central League lead in win and his ERA is fifth-best in the league
