YOKOHAMA, Japan - Madison's Bryan Bullington is scheduled to be taken off the Hiroshima Carp's active roster after giving up seven runs - all earned - in just three innings of work Wednesday at Yokohama.
The 61-pitch outing was the roughest of the Nippon Professional Baseball season for Bullington, 33, a fourth-year starter for the Carp. He left the game trailing 7-5 but was taken off the hook when Hiroshima overcame the Bay Stars 11-9 in what was a 30-hit slugfest.
A 1999 graduate of Madison and Indiana Mr. Baseball, Bullington gave up two runs on three singles in the first inning and five runs on six singles and a pair of doubles in the third as Yokohama batted around. He faced 19 batters, striking out one and walking none in the no-decision.
According to Hiroshima manager Kenjiro Nomura, Bullington, now 9-8 with a 4.47 ERA, will be taken off Hiroshima's active roster for what will amount to a 10-day period of rest and recovery before making his next start.
Bullington has started a team-high 22 games this season for the Carp and is tied for the Carp lead in wins with nine. He has thrown 127 innings - second on the Carp only to Kenta Maeda's 129 - allowing 139 hits with 83 strikeouts and 28 walks.
