Masahiro Tanaka was a major disappointment on Opening Day Sunday, and he knows it.
After allowing a career-worst seven earned runs in 2.2 innings, Tanaka went on Twitter late Sunday night to explain what went wrong.
In a Google translation of the tweet, Tanaka says, “I really could not do anything today. It is miserable. I looked back on the video, but it is too cruel.
“…However, as I understood the problem with some kind of image, I managed to correct it somehow and hope to see the next one.”
