Mihashi is pitching nicely, outing all of Mihoshi’s batters so far. At the top of the 2nd inning, Tajima easily hits Kanō’s forkball. Hanai tries to compete with Tajima and do the same, but strikes out instead. Momoe then stresses the importance of the team to work together, because Tajima needs the help of his team mates in order to score runs since he is too small to hit home runs on his own. During the bottom of the 2nd, Kanō explains to Oda the secret behind Mihashi’s fastball, saying that it is “faster than a slow fastball”, which is why it is hard to hit.
